Taylor and Francis Path to Open Publishing Agreement (Pilot)

Agreement duration: The UNSW agreement is from 1st January 2024 to 31 December 2024. This is a pilot agreement for 2024 and will be dependent on participating institutions.

Summary: This agreement includes 7 key issue-based collections from Routledge and CRC Press Imprints. Each collection includes 10 frontlisted titles which will be made Open Access according to funding targets per collection. Collections will be across all discipline areas. Full length monographs, including both authored and edited books.
