Taylor & Francis Uses F1000 to Pilot a New Book Publishing Concept

Taylor & Francis implemented a pilot of a new book publishing concept called Open Plus Books, which “fuses the traditional print and Open Access books model with F1000’s Open Research publishing model.” The press release continues, “United by their shared goals of amplifying and democratizing research, this first joint initiative following the acquisition of F1000 by Taylor & Francis Group in 2020 is an important further step in strengthening and broadening Taylor & Francis’ capabilities in open research and open access book publishing, as well as enabling F1000 to extend its trailblazing open research publishing offering into books.”

With Open Plus Books, authors or editors can publish an OA book on the open research platform right after submission, with each chapter functioning like a research article and including underlying data and interactive figures. Chapters can be published right after submission and updated as needed. The press release notes, “This reduces barriers to collaborative research and supports authors getting credit for their contributions to research. Publications on the platform benefit from support for code syntax highlighting, so code is fully readable in the body of the chapter.”

Books can then be published in both print and OA formats, with authors continuing to add chapters or information, creating new versions of the work. Then the updates can be used in subsequent editions of the print and OA book.

For more information, read the press release.
