Taylor & Francis

Agreement period
1 Jan 2021 – 31 Dec 2023

Agreement details
The open access publishing agreement with Taylor and Francis allows corresponding authors from Maynooth University make their articles accepted for publication in eligible T&F journals open access without the author paying an article processing charge (APC). 

Eligible journals:

All fully-OA journals and most hybrid (Open Select) journals are eligible:


Ineligible journals:

Certain journals are excluded from OA publishing under the agreement: See


Eligible authors

  • The corresponding author must be a current staff member or student of Maynooth University at the time the article is accepted for publication. The corresponding author must ensure their correct affiliation details are known to the publisher at this time.
  • Text in T&F’s author workflows may give the impression that authors will be billed for the APC if they choose OA and are rejected for IReL APC funding. This will not happen: if rejected, authors will be offered a choice (paying the APC from their own funds, or subscription access at no cost).
