About the Read & Publish Agreement

MSU Library has a ‘read and publish’ agreement with Taylor & Francis (T&F). In addition to the continued read-access to subscribed T&F journals, Montana State University corresponding authors will be able to publish a select number of articles in T&F hybrid or fully open access (OA) journals.

Overview of Publishing Agreement

*As there is a limit to the number of articles that can be published openly during each year of this agreement, it may not be possible to make your article open access if the library's article allowance is capped at the time of your request.

  2. All MSU authors who choose to publish their article openly through this agreement, should also submit a request for funding through the MSU Library Author Fund
  3. Once the form has been received, the library will approve the request, and the article will continue through the publishing process.
