Agreement period may vary per organisation. There is a limited number of OA articles available annually during the agreement period. This year's OA articles belonging to the agreement have run out.

What do I need to do to get the benefit?

Send your manuscript in Taylor & Francis Online according to the standard practice. T&F has two different routes for leaving the manuscript to be accepted: Editorial Manager and ScholarOne. This varies journal by journal but the system directs you automatically to the right route. At the acceptance stage you are identified belonging to a certain organisation on the basis of the name of the organisation. When sending the article select carefully your main organisation from the drop down menu (picture below), neither faculty nor department, and use your organisational e-mail address to make your organisation known to T&F. In case your affiliation changes after leaving your manuscript don’t forget to tell your production editor about your new affiliation.

 

Selecting affiliation.

If your article is accepted, T&F will send you and your organisation e-mail about the acceptance and at the same time T&F will inform you about your organisation’s Open Access agreement with T&F (see picture below).

Email from Taylor & Francis telling you about the option to publish Open Access.

Your organisation approves that your article can be published Open Access free of charge after approving your affiliation, if there are Open Access articles left. You can contact the library of your organisation for more detailed information. If your organisation approves your affiliation, T&F will send you e-mail (see picture below) and inform you that you can publish your article Open Access free of charge.

Email from Taylor & Francis telling that you are entitled to publish Open Access.

Option 1. Your organisation approves Open Access publishing of your article free of charge in the T&F system before you have signed the publishing agreement.

Usually after 24-48 hours from the approval email T&F will send you e-mail which contains a link to the publishing agreement (see picture below). At the same time you will be able to select the Creative Commons licence for your article. If you are funded by Academy of Finland your licence is automatically CC BY, which is the recommended licence regardless of the funder.
