Taylor & Francis and EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) Announce First Open Access Agreement
Taylor & Francis Group and EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) have just announced a twelve month agreement which will enable researchers in countries with developing or transition economies to publish OA at a substantially reduced rate, or completely free of any article publishing charge (APC) on some Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals.
Researchers in EIFL’s 45 network countries will be able to choose from a selection of 66 pure OA journals to publish in, ranging across the sciences, social sciences and humanities. As one of the original signatories of the Budapest Open Access Initiative, EIFL plays a significant role in spreading the principles of open research throughout their network. This is the first time they have signed such an agreement with a publisher, part of Taylor & Francis’ continued commitment to support open access publishing in emerging countries.
