Partner with Taylor & Francis

Understanding the proposal process

Thanks for your interest in publishing your journal with Taylor & Francis! We evaluate potential partnerships based on publication quality, financial sustainability, and a range of factors including journal scope, editorial objectives, publishing model, and more.

To best understand a journal’s potential fit within our portfolio, and what we could offer you as a publishing partner, we ask that enquiries include as much information as possible. Below, you’ll find detailed guidance and questionnaires to support you as you craft your proposal.

Whether you’re ready to submit a proposal or just interested in learning more about our process, the first step is to contact our Publishing Partnerships team. Let us know who you are and what you’re looking for, and you’ll hear from a member of the team within a few business days. We’ll help you connect with a Portfolio Development Specialist or subject expert to explore potential partnerships and get your questions answered.

What to expect

To help determine the direction of a potential partnership discussion, we’ll ask you early in the process to provide as much information as you can about your publication. Our questionnaires outline the most important points to consider when proposing either an entirely new journal or a new partnership with an existing journal. As a prospective partner, you’ll need to provide specific details across the following categories:
