Academic publisher Taylor & Francis has welcomed the new guidance from cOAlition S on transformative arrangements for Journals. cOAlition S have clearly listened to feedback from the community. The global publisher notes that it is encouraging to see more feasible conditions in the revised guidance, particularly that the threshold for converting journals to a full OA model has been increased in line with this feedback. This will certainly assist Taylor & Francis as they look to transition journals to a full OA model in line with the cOAlition’s guidance.
Taylor & Francis notes the cOAlition’s point that funding will only be offered on hybrid journals until the end of 2024, but hope the cOAlition will support those journals that convert to a full OA model after this point.
Taylor & Francis is committed to opening up research. They have acquired leading OA publishers, Co-action and Dove Medical Press as well as the innovative F1000 Research platform to help in this journey; over 50 journals have been converted from a subscription to a full OA model; Taylor & Francis launched its own full OA imprint Cogent in 2013; millions have been invested in developing article level workflows to support OA, including guiding researchers to compliant options and providing better information to institutions on their faculty’s output.
As a result, the publisher has seen significant growth in OA across all journals and increasingly across their books portfolio.
