Taylor & Francis Waives Article Processing Charges for Open Access Journals
Taylor & Francis has an agreement with EIFL that guarantees no - or heavily reduced - Article Processing Charges (APCs) for authors from EIFL partner countries when they publish in a Taylor & Francis-owned fully Open Access (OA) journal, including Cogent journals. Kenya is one of the partners included in the agreement. The agreement runs until 2023. You can view the title list here and browse it by subject.
How does it work?
The new submission system, “Submission Portal”, will automatically recognize countries and will alert eligible authors that they are eligible for a waiver or discount, and prompt them to apply for it. They will need to tick a box to apply for the waiver or discount. The waiver will not be automatically applied.
Subjects covered in the offer
Arts & Humanities, Behavioral Sciences & Social Care, Business, Economics and Sociology, Education, Geography, Information Science, Sport & Heritage, Life, Earth & Environmental Science, Medicine & Health, Physical Sciences and Engineering, Politics, IR & Area Studies.
