Taylor & Francis Group and The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) are delighted to announce a new publishing partnership. Taylor & Francis will publish IOSH’s academic and policy discourse journal – Policy and Practice in Health and Safety (PPHS) from 2016.
PPHS is an important source of reference for anyone studying or working at a professional level in health and safety. The journal has recently covered comparisons of different regulatory and management frameworks, case studies of occupational safety and health in individual locations, and the impact of economic and political factors on health and safety.
Leon Heward-Mills, Global Publishing Director of Taylor & Francis said, “We are delighted to be entering into this partnership with IOSH and to have the opportunity to work with them on their prestigious journal Policy and Practice in Health and Safety. IOSH’s position as the only chartered body for health and safety professionals in the world – coupled with the existing portfolio of Taylor & Francis books and journals within this growing field – will ensure a successful collaboration.”
Shelley Frost, Executive Director of Policy at the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), said: “We are looking forward to working with Taylor & Francis to secure Policy and Practice in Health and Safety as the natural home to the best health and safety research and policy, and to enhance the journal’s profile globally, providing a place for the most respected academic and policy discourse on health and safety.
“Excellence in publishing key research, policy impact and practical guidance form the robust core of the journal and it is important that published work reflects the aims and objectives of IOSH. As such, IOSH will have significant oversight of the journal to ensure that the journal’s own aims and scopes evolve in step with line with our vision.”
In anticipation of the new publishing arrangement and the first issue of 2016, recruitment for a new Editor-in-Chief for PPHS will begin shortly.
IOSH is the Chartered body for health and safety professionals. With 44,000 members in 120 countries, we’re the world’s biggest professional health and safety organisation.
We set standards, and support, develop and connect our members with resources, guidance, events and training. We’re the voice of the profession, and campaign on issues that affect millions of working people.
IOSH was founded in 1945 and is a registered charity with international NGO status.
Supporting authors: Taylor & Francis Group re-launch their online Author Services
Today sees the re-launch of Taylor & Francis Group’s Author Services website, with new resources for all researchers looking to publish a journal article.
With information on choosing a journal, writing a paper, what to expect during peer review and production, as well as what to think about once you’re published, the website guides researchers through the journal publishing process from initial idea to post-publication. It includes details on a host of different topics, including ethics in journal publishing, open access publishing for Taylor & Francis and Routledge authors, article promotion, and what to expect during peer review. The website includes videos and infographics, as well as step-by-step instructions to aid researchers as they take their first steps into authoring a journal article.
While some of the areas covered are aimed specifically at researchers looking to publish in a Taylor & Francis or Routledge journal, there is also much which will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about the journal publishing process, and what to expect as they move through it.
“We’re excited to be re-launching Taylor & Francis Group’s online support for journal authors, which has been developed with the input of researchers from around the world. Their comments and advice at the very start of this process has been invaluable, shaping the style and content of the site to ensure it addresses the needs of the global author community we work with. We look forward to seeing the feedback we receive from researchers, as they use the resources available and as we add to them over the course of the next few months.”
