Reviewer Terms & Conditions


These terms and conditions (“Terms”) are entered into by you (“You” or “Your”) and Taylor & Francis (a trading division of Informa UK Limited), a company registered in England and Wales with company number 01072954 whose registered office is at 5 Howick Place, London, SW1P 1WG (“T&F”).

T&F provides, at its sole discretion, select books and eBooks published by T&F on an “as available” basis to members of the media based on the title chosen during registration (“Media Review Copy Service”; each book (whether hardcopy or electronic copy) a “Review Copy”).

By completing and submitting the sign-up form to use our services, You hereby agree to these terms and conditions. You also agree that our Terms & Conditions (of website use) and our Privacy Policy applies to your use of our services.


The Media Review Copy Service is only available to professional book reviewers from recognized magazine and journal publishers, radio and televisions programmes or media outlets (each a “Journalist”) who wish to review the Review Copy in a publication. T&F may verify this before access is granted to the Media Review Copy Service.

By completing and submitting the sign-up form to T&F, You warrant that You are a Journalist and You agree that You will write a review (“Review”) on the Review Copy. Upon receipt of Your completed sign-up form, T&F shall, in its sole discretion, determine whether You qualify as a Journalist and consider your proposed review of the Review Copy then determine whether you are eligible to receive the Review Copy. T&F may request additional information from You to verify Your eligibility. T&F’s decision shall be final and no additional correspondence will be entered into.

If accepted to the Media Review Copy Service, You agree that you shall send an electronic PDF copy of Your review of any Review Copy to [email protected].

You agree that Your permitted use of the Review Copy is personal to You and Your organization. You shall not, as a principal obligation, copy, sell, give or lend the Review Copy to any third parties. You must notify T&F immediately of any unauthorized sharing, copying or forwarding of the Review Copy that comes to Your attention. For permission to reproduce the Review Copy, please contact [email protected].

At T&F’s sole discretion, T&F may terminate and discontinue the Media Review Copy Service at any time, and/or may terminate Your participation in the same at any time, including if You have failed to comply with these Terms.

Review Copy

The Media Review Copy Service is supplied by T&F to eligible professional book reviewers (as described below) as a free resource. All Review Copies are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis and T&F accepts no liability for any loss or damage whatsoever sustained by You as a result of using or relying on the Media Review Copy Service or any Review Copy.

The Review Copy selected must be: (a) priced on T&F’s website at under £150; (b) published within the last 18 months; and (c) not solely available as a ‘print on demand’ title. If approved, T&F shall provide the Review Copy. For the avoidance of doubt, the format of the Review Copy (print/eBook) shall be decided by T&F. Receiving a Review Copy is subject to the Terms set forth herein.

Review Copies are protected by international copyright laws, database rights and other intellectual property rights. T&F, its affiliates or its licensees are the owners of these rights. All product, company and institutional names and logos which may be contained within a Review Copy are the trade marks, service marks or trading names of their respective owners. All rights not specifically granted to You under these Terms are reserved.

You are responsible for ensuring that Your IT system meets all relevant technical specifications necessary to receive any electronic version of the Review Copy, if applicable.

T&F does not warrant that the electronic version of the Review Copy, if applicable, will be free from viruses and/or other code that has contaminating or destructive properties, and not liable for any harm caused. T&F reserves the right, at any time, to withdraw all or part of the Review Copy service at any time, at its sole discretion.

Your Submitted Review

By submitting a Review to T&F, you grant T&F a non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferrable, perpetual, worldwide license to use that Review, in whole or in part, and all intellectual property rights contained within it in connection with T&F publications and our business, including for promoting the same. Although you will still own the intellectual property in your Review, T&F will have the right to freely use, edit, adapt, reproduce, publish and/or distribute the material contained in your Review.

Among other uses, T&F shall have the right, but not the obligation, to post your Review, in whole or in part, to or other T&F websites, and/or to reproduce it on other marketing or promotions materials, and to share such Review with relevant book authors along with your name and any details of the Review’s publication.

You agree to waive all moral rights in relation to your Review for the purposes of the license set out above. If you are not willing or in a position to grant such a license to T&F, please do not submit the Review.

By submitting your Review, you warrant that you have the right to grant T&F the non-exclusive license described above and you indemnify T&F for any breach of that warranty.

Indemnification & Liability

You agree to indemnify and hold T&F harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees made by any third party as a result of any infringement of T&F or any third party’s rights (including intellectual property rights) arising from Your use and/or misuse of the Review Copy and any breach of these Terms by You.
