Taylor & Francis Opens Access with new OA Program
The New Year sees the launch of an exciting range of Open Access options from Taylor & Francis via the Taylor & Francis Open program. This new initiative is designed to give authors and their sponsors flexibility and variety when they choose to publish research with Taylor & Francis.
The Taylor & Francis Open program is a suite of fully Open Access journals consisting of brand new titles, dynamic titles from T&F’s existing portfolio which are converting to OA, and titles published on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand and the Human Sciences Research Council, South Africa. Many of the titles in this program will collaborate with leading journals within T&F’s existing portfolio, providing input and support from learned societies and internationally-acclaimed editors to ensure their calibre.
Taylor & Francis Open journals will have affordable article publication fees, with discounts or fee waivers for emergent countries. Authors will benefit from rapid online publication, rigorous peer review and the high levels of customer care Taylor & Francis provides to all authors. Their finished article will be showcased on Taylor & Francis Online, helping them to gain recognition and esteem for their contribution to their field.
Taylor & Francis can confirm the following titles will be included in Taylor & Francis Open, with more to join in the New Year:
Green Chemistry Letters and Reviews
International Journal of Smart and Nano Materials
Journal of Biological Dynamics
Journal of Organic Semiconductors
Kotuitui: New Zealand Journal of Social Sciences Online - published on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand
SAHARA-J: Journal of Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS - published on behalf of the Human Sciences Research Council

Dr David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director, sums up Taylor & Francis’ new approaches to Open Access, “Taylor & Francis is committed to producing high-calibre journals that showcase quality global research. We believe that this content should be widely disseminated and are now exploring various Open Access models to enable universal access in ways that are sustainable and meet the needs of the academic and research communities. Over the past three years society journals have been partnering with Taylor & Francis Group at the rate of more than one per week, and, if required, we are now able to offer a potential partner a range of Open Access models”.
Taylor & Francis will also continue to offer Taylor & Francis Open Select, which is a hybrid program giving authors the choice to publish on an Open Access basis in over 500 titles from across Taylor & Francis Group’s extensive portfolio.
