This time frame is clear in all correspondence to reviewers invited to review submissions taking the 3 – 5 weeks option, and they accept the invitation on this basis.
Due to the costs incurred to meet Accelerated Publication timeframes, Taylor & Francis reserves the right to a partial charge of the Accelerated Publication fee if the author withdraws their paper.
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.
