Why should your authors use the Taylor & Francis submission portal?

Submission Portal is a Taylor & Francis-branded interface that facilitates journal selection and submission for authors submitting to our journals.

The portal puts the author experience first, with a number of new developments to make submitting to our journals easier than ever. Keep reading to discover the benefits for authors, from single sign-on to seamless transfer functionality.

Is your journal using Submission Portal and the Article Transfer Service? Find out what this means for you and get answers to the most common questions in our FAQs

Single sign-on to a centralized author dashboard

Being able to submit to a number of journals from one centralized location is key to the author experience. The centralized dashboard within Submission Portal allows authors to submit manuscripts, stay updated on their progress, and submit revisions all from one dashboard accessed with a single login. This author dashboard displays any previous submissions made using the portal, and stores submissions which are made in future.

Single sign-on means users no longer need to have multiple accounts for online submission systems like ScholarOne Manuscripts and Editorial Manager. The portal also offers ORCiD login, which allows authors to have some fields pre-populated during the submission process (where these are available on their ORCID profile). This reduces the burden on authors to enter this information manually on submission.

Seamless transfer functionality

Using the portal, authors can now transfer submissions seamlessly between Taylor & Francis journals. If an article is eligible for a transfer, the author will receive an email highlighting one or more related journals which may be suitable. To take up that offer, the author selects the journal they would like to transfer to, before completing their submission to the new journal without re-entering all the same information about their paper.

Accurate APC quotation for our Gold Open Access journals

Confusion surrounding APCs is long gone with the introduction of our automated quotation tool. This tool intelligently selects the correct discounts for those submitting from eligible countries, without requiring a discount code. Additionally, if the author’s institution has a sales agreement that waives their APC, the tool will then offer the correct discount based on the information in an author’s account.

How does Submission Portal affect the peer review process?

You, your reviewers, and Editorial Office team will continue to use your current peer review system to carry out peer review on submitted manuscripts. You won’t need a Submission Portal account because Submission Portal is author-facing and for the submission process only. You will notice some changes during the transition, detailed in our FAQs.

Papers submitted via Submission Portal are sent to the journal’s existing ScholarOne or Editorial Manager site, where editors conduct peer review and make decisions as before. Manuscript decisions and reviewer comments are automatically transferred back to the author’s Submission Portal dashboard, where they can then submit any requested revisions.
