IReL and Open Access: Taylor & Francis

IReL, the Irish Research eLibrary is a nationally funded electronic research library. IReL also seeks to secure open access agreements with publishers.

Overview

 

The IReL-Taylor & Francis agreement (March 2024-2026) allows eligible corresponding authors in participating institutions to publish original research open access in all T&F Open Select journals (hybrid journals), at no extra cost (with fees covered by the agreement) providing the IRel APC quota availability of at time of acceptance.

OA quota per year: the OA publishing fund with this agreement is limited.  As of June, we project that this allocation will run out in August 2024. Once this occurs, IReL-funded OA will not be offered to authors for the rest of 2024. For more information see Taylor and Francis – IReL
