Academics and researchers create new concepts, prove and disprove theories and develop ground-breaking solutions every day. In Academic Publishing we help develop and promote the latest academic thinking through publication in specialist, high quality books and journals.
High quality journals with cutting-edge thinking
Peer-reviewed journals are vital to the academic value chain, ensuring the best academic thinking is distributed efficiently across the world. Our peer-reviewed journals support the validation, dissemination and promotion of such research.
Research results are summarised in papers and submitted for publication in relevant academic journals. Validation is managed through the peer-review process, where experts in relevant subjects qualify and question the reasoning and results of research. Only the highest quality, relevant and forward thinking research articles are accepted into journals. The majority does not reach the threshold for inclusion. This means publication in a respected journal provides a quality approval stamp, allowing the academic community to rely on it and build on the findings in future research.
Traditional and Open Access journals
We have a growing portfolio of Open Access Journals within Taylor & Francis and in our dedicated Open Access publishing business, Cogent OA. Our Open Access programme provides flexibility, offering academics and funding bodies an alternative channel to publish and promote their research.

In-depth specialist books
Academic books similarly promote academic thinking, providing a platform for researchers to gain recognition and for the community to access, learn and build on their findings. Some of our books titles expand on the theme of a journal article, providing in-depth analysis of a particular subject area, concept or theory. Other are more instructive or reference based.
We publish specialist titles through a mixture of monographs, reference and textbooks. We cover a wide range of subjects and work across the academic spectrum, from second and third year undergraduate level to post-graduate, professional research and development, teaching and instruction. We are one of the leading Humanities & Social Sciences publishers in the world.
We focus on specialist, niche subject areas, such that there are few alternatives to our books with the same focus and depth of analysis. This means we sell relatively low volumes of some individual titles, catering to small communities of individuals.
