OA Publishing Agreements

A list of OA publishing agreements open to DCU authors

OA Publishing Agreement with Taylor & Francis 


Agreement period: 1 Jan 2021 – 31 Dec 2023

  • The IReL-T&F agreement allows eligible corresponding authors in participating institutions to publish articles open access upon publication at no extra cost.
  • Access to subscription content: authorised users in participating institutions will have access to all T&F journals from its SSH and Medical collections.


Instructions for authors

  • Eligible journals for OA publishing: over 1,900 T&F Open Select journals (hybrid journals).
  • Eligible authors: at the time of an article is accepted for publication, the corresponding author must be a current staff member or student with a participating institution.
  • Eligible corresponding authors will be invited to make their articles open access on acceptance. Pending approval by a participating institution, the article will be published OA. If an author’s request is approved, T&F will notify them by email. If the request is not approved, the author can then choose to either a) fund the APC (article processing charge) through a different source, or b) publish the article subscription, which does not require the payment of an APC.
