Taylor & Francis joins the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA)

Oxford, February, 2013

Taylor & Francis is delighted to be joining the community of open access (OA) publishers that are part of OASPA. OASPA represents the interest of OA publishers globally within scientific and technical disciplines; advancing OA models, advocacy, education, and innovation within the field.

"We fully support the objectives of OASPA in developing tools and standards to support OA publishing, and facilitating information exchange within the community”, remarked Vicky Gardner, Open Access Publisher.

Taylor & Francis offers a range of exciting Open Access options to provide authors flexibility and variety when they choose to publish research with us:

Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open
is a suite of high-quality and rigorously reviewed pure open access journals, helmed by internationally-acclaimed editors to ensure their calibre.
Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open Select offer authors or funders the option to make an article fully and permanently open access online in one of our subscription-based journals upon payment of an article publishing charge (APC).

Authors publishing in either programme will benefit from rapid online publication, rigorous peer review and the high levels of customer care Taylor & Francis provides to all authors.
”We are enormously pleased to be part of OASPA and see it as a way to forge sustainable OA publishing routes that will be of benefit to the global research communities across the whole gamut of subject areas”, said David Green, Global Publishing Director of Taylor & Francis Journals.

For further information about Taylor & Francis’ collaboration with OASPA, please contact: Victoria Wright, Communications Manager, Taylor & Francis Group Journals
