Taylor & Francis RAP Agreement

The 2023 - 2025 Taylor & Francis RAP agreement enables ANU authors to publish accepted articles into selected hybrid e-journals from Taylor & Francis without any APCs.

Eligible articles

Article types

Open access publishing covered under this RAP agreement includes the following article types:

  • article
  • review
  • research article
  • review article
  • report
  • short communication
  • case report note
  • original article
  • guest editorial.

Acceptance date

Articles must have an acceptance date within the duration of this agreement (2023-2025) to be eligible to be published open access with no transactional APCs.

Number of included articles

  • This agreement provides for an allowance of articles* by authors to be published open access in 2023 with no transactional APCs. 
  • The allowance is a collective pool for all participating CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) Member institutions.
  • Once the allowance is used, authors of any additional articles accepted in 2023, may choose to publish articles as "closed access" or pay an APC for the article to be published open access.

*the number of included articles for 2023 is calculated at 69% (3,114 articles) of the 2021 hybrid output OA articles from authors at participating institutions. In 2024 the number will be 75% and in 2025 it will be 79%. The exact number of articles in 2024 and 2025 will depend on the number of participating institutions in those years. 

Other charges

The publisher may charge service fees (e.g., colour-in-print, reprints, posters).

Information for authors

Responsible corresponding authors above may publish immediately to open access on the publisher's platform once the article has been accepted with no transactional APCs. 

Author rights

Articles from authors at participating institutions will be published under a CC-BY or CC BY-NC-ND licence.

Further information about the licences is available on the publisher’s website.

The Creative Commons licenses allow reuse (some with conditions) while protecting the authors' rights of acknowledgment as authors. Authors retain copyright.
