We’re introducing improved researcher services across our journals with Submission Portal. In this guide for editors, we’ll talk you through:
Is your journal using Submission Portal and the Article Transfer Service? Get answers to the most common questions in our FAQs
Submission Portal is an interface supported by your existing peer review system that facilitates journal selection and submission for authors. It’s designed to offer the ultimate online submission experience.
Because Submission Portal is author-facing and for the submission process only, you won’t need an account to carry out your day-to-day editor tasks (e.g. inviting reviewers, making decisions). You’ll continue to use your current peer review system (Editorial Manager/Scholar One) to carry out peer review on submitted manuscripts.
“Superb because the website is so easy to understand. I didn’t find it difficult to familiarize with”
“The process of submission is user-friendly”
“I really like the Taylor & Francis portal for new paper submissions”
For you and your editorial team, articles received via Submission Portal integrate into your existing peer review system. So, you’ll continue to use your current peer review system while offering an enhanced publishing experience to your authors. The intuitive features that simplify submission mean you can save time checking details and responding to author queries.
You, your reviewers, and Editorial Office team will continue to use your current peer review system to carry out peer review on submitted articles, however you will notice some changes when your journal starts using Submission Portal. For example, there may be changes to the wording or manner in which we collect information from authors, as well as changes to how you use reject options. Your Taylor & Francis Portfolio Manager will be in touch with further guidance when your journal is ready to be onboarded.
Our dedicated team are constantly working to bring new updates and features to Submission Portal based on feedback and real-life user behaviour. Here’s some of our popular recent developments:
A timeline of events shows authors the history of their submission and future steps, making the publishing process clear and transparent.

Clear calls to actions
Revision required? Payment of an APC due? Know what to do next with clear calls to action in the author dashboard.
“Instructions for the submission process of my manuscript were clear”
Understanding the author experience
