Taylor & Francis has launched TandFChina.com, an online hub for the scholarly community in China.

The hub is aimed at providing key resources for authors, researchers, journal editors, research librarians and learned societies in Mandarin, as well as being a gateway to all Taylor & Francis content, both books and journals and from all imprints (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, CRC Press and Garland Science).

More than 70,000 China-based researchers published in Taylor & Francis journals in 2015, almost five times the figure in 2010, and account for 16 per cent of authors published that year, the company says. This number continues to grow, with over 25,000 published so far in 2016. The launch of TandFChina.com aims to bring guidance to Chinese authors in Mandarin, with key information on such areas as publishing a book, selecting and submitting to a journal, promoting research, and open access publishing.

Xin Jin, editor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Letters, said: This Chinese website of Taylor & Francis Group will greatly enhance the interaction between publishers, editors and authors, and will enable Chinese editors to catch up with the latest news from Taylor & Francis Group and the overall publishing industry.'

Roger Horton, chief executive at the Taylor & Francis Group, added: 'During my 20 years at Taylor & Francis I have been delighted to see us develop to become a truly global academic publisher. Recently I have taken a great pleasure and pride in helping Taylor & Francis establish a greater presence in Asia, and particularly in China. It is vital that we connect with all our academic partners in China, and this initiative is another important step on the journey we wish to take in China over the coming years.'
