    Taylor & Francis publish a range of journals specific to South Africa. You can browse through these journals here. Below are some highlights:

    Co-publication with UNISA (University of South Africa) Press and NISC

    As the only international academic publisher with an editorial team on the continent, Taylor & Francis Africa is embedded in the local and regional environment. This puts us in a strong position to work closely with key institutions, learned societies, and government stakeholders to enable the creation and dissemination of African research in the global arena.

    Key to our success in the region are our long-standing co-publishing partnerships with South African publishers, with around half of the South African portfolio co-published with NISC and Unisa Press.

    We also work closely with co-publishers, institutes, and organizations to provide workshops, training, and resources for researchers.

    Altmetric Attention Scores are tracked and collated mentions and shares of journal articles and other outputs across social media outlets, blogs, public policy documents, patent citations, post-publication peer-review forums, and online reference managers.

    Altmetric LLP, collect article-level metrics and the online conversations around articles on Taylor & Francis Online, to give an indicator of digital impact and reach. “Mentions” that contain links to any version of the same article are picked up and collated. The result is the Altmetric Attention Score.

    Altmetrics demonstrate the impact of research beyond academia. These are some of the highest-scoring South African articles from the last few years.
