Can I translate my article into another language?
Proposals to publish translations of published articles should be directed to the Permissions Manager at Taylor & Francis. If you are not the author of the article, the licence will require you to obtain the author’s permission. In creating the translation, you must not use any of the text or data in the original article except for the purpose of translating the content. In particular, you must not use any of the information for any commercial purpose.
Once you have secured Taylor & Francis's permission to proceed, and paid any requisite permissions fees, you should ensure that the translated version carries an acknowledgment to the original article as the version of scholarly record, including a hyperlink to the source.

If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact our Author Services department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Can I upload an Author's Original Manuscript?
A: Providing that the editorial policy of the journal concerned allows this. Use the following acknowledgment: "This is an Author's Original Manuscript of an Article submitted for consideration in the [JOURNAL TITLE] [copyright Taylor & Francis]; [JOURNAL TITLE] is available online at http://www.tandfonline.com/."
Q: How do I know if the editorial policy of the journal concerned allows this?
A: Authors’ Original Manuscripts are necessarily prior to publication and transfer of rights to T&F, so the depositing authors need to check with the academic editors concerned, to see whether they regard Original Manuscript deposit as prior publication.
Q: Can I upload an Author’s Accepted Manuscript of any article published in your publications?
A: Yes, but you cannot use the PDF version of the article prepared by Taylor & Francis. This is subject always to an embargo of 12 months after first publication (be it online or in print) in STM (science, technology and medicine) subjects and the behavioral sciences and of 18 months after first publication for SSH (social science, arts and humanities) journals.
Q: How do I work out the publication date?
A: Check the article abstract online (you do not need a subscription for this). The publication date will be given here:
Q: May we change the formatting of the Original Manuscripts and Accepted Manuscripts?
A: Yes, the formatting can be changed to suit the repository, but it must be made clear on the article that the formatting has been altered from the original and that T&F take no responsibility for any errors or changes to the emphasis the formatting has introduced.
Q: Can you send me an electronic copy of the Accepted Manuscript?
A: No. Please request this from the author.
Q: Where can I find out about your policy on depositing articles into PubMedCentral/UKPubMedCentral?
A: Please see the information on this page, under the section heading "Do I need to deposit my article into PubMedCentral (PMC)?"
Taylor & Francis will deposit all NIH-funded research direct to PubMed, including requisite metadata. PubMed complies with Taylor & Francis's twelve-month embargo.
If articles are not NIH-funded, then the author or the author's nominee is permitted to deposit the author's Accepted Manuscript to PubMed once the embargo period (12 or 18 months depending on the journal) has elapsed. The Accepted Manuscript should incorporate a link to the Version of Record, thus: "This is an author's Accepted Manuscript of an article published in [include the complete citation information for the final version of the article] as published in the [JOURNAL TITLE] [date of publication] [copyright Taylor & Francis], available online at: http://www.tandfonline.com/ [Article DOI]."
