Elevate Series Combines Service, Speed and Quality

Researchers looking to share their work openly and at pace have an exciting new publishing option that delivers on reach, impact and value. Launched by Taylor & Francis, the Elevate Series of broad-scope open access journals offers a fast, streamlined experience and full support in navigating the publication process with a trusted partner.

Authors will experience the editorial excellence and high ethical standards of Taylor & Francis journals, along with personalized support at every step, allowing them to efficiently publish their work and comply with the requirements of all major funder and institutional mandates.

New and optimized systems and processes developed especially for the series will ensure a fast publication process, including an initial decision on whether their article will be peer reviewed within 5 days.

Researchers submitting to an Elevate journal will also benefit from one-to-one editorial support. Whenever authors have questions, require feedback, or just want an update on the status of their paper, they will be guaranteed a response from the dedicated Elevate team within 48 hours.

All Elevate journals will be fully open access and have a sound science editorial threshold. This reflects the ambition of Taylor & Francis to give every researcher the opportunity to choose open access (OA) and its commitment to the power of open research as the most effective way to amplify the research that fosters human progress. Elevate titles join the range of Taylor & Francis open options, which include over 2,600 fully OA and hybrid journals, one of the leading OA book programs, and multiple innovative F1000 platforms which are leading the way on transparency.

Annals of Medicine is the first journal in the series, which will soon comprise titles across subject areas, enabling a broad range of researchers to publish with Elevate. Other journals joining the series in 2023 include All Life, Cancer Management & Research and a brand-new cross-disciplinary launch, Sustainable Communities. Elevate journals will all be broad in scope, promoting collaboration and providing a holistic view of current topics to fuel further research.

Emma Greenwood, Director of Open Access at Taylor & Francis, said: “The Elevate Series has been developed to meet key priorities for today’s researchers. Fast publication along with the reach and impact of research are more important than ever. And when it comes to choosing a publisher, we know researchers want a trusted partner who will provide them with a service tailored to their individual needs and the best value for money. That’s what we’re excited to be offering with Elevate.”
