Taylor & Francis launches newly developed Editor Resources site

Taylor & Francis is delighted to announce the launch of the new and improved Editor Resources site. The online hub of content is packed with insights, information and resources to support the Taylor & Francis community of journal editors.

The site’s content has been curated around six core themes – content development, working with editorial boards, publication ethics, journal visibility, peer review, and research metrics which together form the basis of a journal editor’s role.

The new suite of resources hosted on the site use a range of formats, including case studies, interviews, downloadable PDF guides, and blog posts, all arranged within the three main sections of the website, which are:

Welcome to Taylor & Francis hosts an easy-to-navigate A-Z glossary of all our policies and guidelines, covering everything from authorship to permissions. Within this section, users will also find how-to videos for our online submission systems (ScholarOne Manuscripts and Editorial Manager) and more information about Taylor & Francis.

The Editor’s Role aims to develop our editors’ core skills and understanding in six key areas with a wealth of resources designed to support them in their role. With downloadable PDF guides for six popular topics and a wide range of additional supporting content, this section of Editor Resources acts as an essential toolkit to support our community.

Meet your Community helps to connect our editors with their community through our global events program. Editors can also learn tips and best practice from their peers through the blogs, interviews and cases studies which comprise the Peer Support Zone, or they can join the discussion directly with our ‘Question of the Week’ series.
