Rapid publication timelines from Taylor & Francis!

From submission to online publication in 3 weeks, Taylor & Francis are the fastest way to get your manuscript published!

Taylor & Francis offer a choice of Fast Track or Rapid Track publication for time-sensitive manuscripts. With Fast Track peer review completed in as little as 1 week and articles appearing online 72 hours of acceptance with our Accepted Manuscripts Online service, you can see your article online and fully citable by your peers in 3 weeks. Please note publication is subject to vigorous, independent peer review.

The timelines below rely on authors making revisions in the below timelines and returning proofs within 48hrs for Fast Track papers. Peer review will commence from the receipt of a completed publication support form. See the Fast Track and Rapid Track forms. Proofs will be delivered 5 working days from return of copyright transfer paperwork if this is received after acceptance.
