|Copyright policy||For our Open (full OA) titles, we offer authors a choice of CC BY and CC BY-NC licenses. For our Open Select (hybrid) titles, we offer CC BY and CC BY-NC-ND. T&F authors retain copyright in their OA works.
All Cogent Series Journals use CC BY.
|Complaint policy||No universal policy covering all journals – we deal with each complaint on a case-by-case basis.|
|Publication charge link||http://authorservices.taylorandfrancis.com/journal-list/ - or authors can review publication charges on the relevant Instructions for Authors page.
|Publication charge policy||Taylor & Francis / Routledge Open journals levy an article publishing charge (APC) for all accepted and published articles to cover the costs of open access publication, though waivers and discounts are applicable (see journal pages for further information).
Journals that are part of the Taylor & Francis / Routledge Open Select portfolio offer authors the choice to:
i) Publish without payment of any charge – the article is then published on a subscription access basis
ii) Publish their research and pay an APC – the article is made open access upon confirmation of payment.
Authors are eligible to apply for a full or partial waiver of the appropriate article publishing charge (APC) if they are based in eligible Research4Life nations. Authors based in a Group A country can apply for a full waiver; authors based in a Group B country can apply for a 50% discount.
Waivers may also be granted in exceptional cases at submission stage. Requests should include details of the affiliation and country of residence of all authors, details of where the research was conducted, and confirmation of all research grant funding received.
A number of institutions have signed up to an open access partner or prepayment option, which means that authors may be eligible to have their APC covered by their institution, or entitled to a discount on the APC. A list of current partners and further information is here: http://www.tandfonline.com/page/openaccess/members.
All Cogent Series journals have adopted the pilot Freedom APCs initiative, whereby authors (or their institution or funder) select the most appropriate article publishing charge at the submission stage based on their specific financial circumstances. Article publishing charges then apply if the article is accepted for publication by the independent academic editors.
Within this policy, our standard recommended APC for all journals in the Cogent Series is $1250 (£781/€977/AU$1367), which supports the costs associated with the ongoing provision of open access publishing for the research community.
