How do I proceed as a corresponding author?

When authors submit a manuscript to a Taylor & Francis journal they need to state their affiliation with Stockholm University and use their SU email address. This way Taylor & Francis will automatically identify articles that potentially qualifies for open access publishing within the agreement.

On acceptance of the article, the library will verify the affiliation after which the article will be immediately open access when published.

About the agreement

The agreement includes Taylor & Francis’ about 2300 hybrid journals (subscription-based journals where articles can be available open access through a publication fee) or so-called “Open Select journals”. Full open access journals are not included.

The agreement is a national so-called “Read & Publish” agreement. This means that the article processing charges are already prepaid, since the agreement includes both the costs of the library's subscriptions as well as the costs of open access publishing. The agreement was negotiated by The National Library of Sweden and in addition to Stockholm University, about 40 other Swedish research institutes have joined.
