About Open Access Books

Open access makes published academic research freely and permanently available online. Anyone, anywhere can read and build upon this research.

At Taylor and Francis we’ve been publishing open access journals since 2006, and in 2013 we complimented it with our Open Access Book program. We publish books and chapters across all subjects covered by Routledge, CRC Press and our other imprints in the humanities, social sciences and behavioural sciences.

Our Open Access Books program allows authors and their funders to publish open access (OA) single- or co-authored books, edited collections and individual chapters. Upon publication, Open Access titles and chapters are made available in digital format to read and download freely under a Creative Commons license.

Visibility and Reach

Open Access content is far more likely to be downloaded and cited. Research has found that Open Access book chapters are downloaded 7 times more than non-OA titles, were cited 50% more and mentioned online 10 times more.

In 2019, OAPEN data shows that Taylor & Francis Open Access Books were access by over 202 countries around the globe. 

Part of the Open Access Community

Taylor & Francis is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) and a publisher member of the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB).
