Taylor & Francis set to open over 50 book titles with Knowledge Unlatched
Taylor & Francis has announced the results of Knowledge Unlatched (KU) 2023, with support pledged to convert over 50 book titles to open access (OA). Titles to benefit from this support cover a broad range of humanities and social science disciplines as well as key topic areas, including climate change, global health, and gender studies. Under the KU crowdfunding model, research libraries around the world unite to support the publication costs of new eBooks and enable access for all to important new research. Since 2016, when Taylor & Francis’ partnership with Knowledge Unlatched began, over 100 books have been published OA at no cost to the authors. OA books now available address a wide variety of important issues, including artificial intelligence, terrorism and social media, as well as environmental policy, pandemics, migration, human rights and fake news. Besides, Taylor & Francis has signaled its ongoing commitment to making a positive difference to communities around the world, by joining the Business for Societal Impact (B4SI) Network, a forum that helps organizations effectively measure and manage their social impact. Last year Taylor & Francis provided free or heavily discounted products and services, worth over £3 million, to more than 74,000 disadvantaged individuals, academic community groups, and charities.
