Open Access Publishing in Taylor & Francis Journals

FinELib consortium’s agreement with Taylor & Francis enables researchers to publish their articles open access in a selection of Taylor & Francis's hybrid journals during 2022. The agreement includes a fixed and limited amount of OA articles, which unfortunately means that the articles will run out before the end of 2022.

OA publishing without a fee for the author is possible in Taylor & Francis Open Select Standart Rate hybrid journals and in the full OA journal Annals of Medicine.

Please note that Taylor & Francis notifies all authors affiliated to the participating institutions about the possibility of OA publishing without additional cost, regardless of if the journal in question is part of the agreement or not. Below you can find instructions for checking if your article is eligible for the free OA publishing.
