How quickly is an article published with accelerated publication?
For many journals there are two options for accelerated publication:
Fast Track takes 3-5 weeks from submission to online publication.
Rapid Track takes 7-9 weeks from submission to online publication.
These timelines rely on authors making revisions and returning required paperwork on schedule.
We can meet these tight turnaround times by putting additional resources into monitoring and administering peer review and production processes.
How does accelerated publication work?
First, you need to select which journal you want to submit your article to.
Browse the full list of journals accepting submissions with accelerated publication. The list includes many journals indexed in the Science Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, Scopus, and MEDLINE.
Once you have decided on a journal, visit its homepage on Taylor & Francis Online where you will find the Instructions for Authors, and the specific information about accelerated publication submissions for that journal.
Once you have submitted your manuscript, it will start its journey through either the Fast Track or Rapid Track process.
Acceptance of articles in all journals offering accelerated publication is driven entirely by editorial considerations and independent peer review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to publication.
Authors are only charged if their paper is accepted; there is no charge for using the service if the paper is rejected. We reserve the right to a partial charge if the author withdraws their paper.

Most of the journals offering accelerated publication also have an open access publishing option, making the research accessible to the widest possible audience.
