Routledge journals

Routledge, the social science and humanities imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, has announced a two-year pilot initiative for the library and information science research community that allows contributors to its library and information science journals to retain the copyright to their work and to post it within their institutional repository without an embargo period.

This initiative applies to any of Routledge’s 35 library and information science journals published from Taylor & Francis’ Philadelphia office. Under this scheme, an author may post the peer-reviewed version of his or her article (although not the published PDF) into their institutional or subject repository immediately following publication. This is on the conditions that it is not used for any commercial or resale use and that the original place of publication is referenced and a URL link is made to the Version of Record on Routledge’s website.
