New agreement enables Open Access publishing in Taylor & Francis journals


The three-year-contract with Taylor & Francis gives the Finnish researchers a possibility to publish their articles Open Access without extra costs. In addition, the subscribing organizations have access to more than 1800 scientific journals published by Taylor & Francis.

The agreement was finished after prolonged negotiations since in the year 2019 the parties were unable to agree the terms. Although the agreement will not cover the Open Access publishing of all Taylor & Francis articles it is a big step towards the 100 % goal.

Access to the journals after one intervening year facilitates the work of the researchers considerably. 15 organizations joined the consortium agreement for the agreement term 1.1.2020–31.12.2022.
