Publishing ethics

The common denominator for all parts of the Taylor & Francis Group is the delivery of high quality, trusted content. We operate a robust and well regarded peer review process to ensure that content is always of the highest standard. We work closely with the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE), a charity dedicated to promoting the integrity of peer-reviewed publications in science.Taylor & Francis uses CrossCheck to screen for unoriginal material. Authors submitting to a Taylor & Francis journal should be aware that their manuscript may be submitted to CrossCheck at any point during the peer review or production processes.

We provide detailed guidance on ethics for journal editors, authors and reviewers.

As part of the Informa group, Taylor & Francis also adheres to a strict Anti-Bribery and Corruption code.
