The researchers/article authors of the University of Tampere have the possibility to publish articles in Taylor & Francis (incl. Routledge) hybrid/subscription journals with a discounted APC fee (APC = Article Processing Charge). The possibility for this discount starts in 2017.
FinElib-consortium has agreed with Taylor & Francis that the APC fee for a hybrid article is 860 euros, when the researcher is the corresponding author. The normal APC fee is 2150 euros.
The discount is available on the condition that the library makes an APC-prepayment to Taylor & Francis. This is why the library organizes the process of the payment of the discounted APC fees. The author should contact the administration of the faculty and confirm on what project the library invoices the faculty. After this the author informs library about to use the discounted APC fee.
The hybrid journals are marked as “Open Select”. The discount can not be used in Taylor & Francis Fully Open and Cogent OA titles.
