Showcasing your journal on the brand new Taylor & Francis Online

 “User-friendly and an improvement. Interestingly makes me want to look ‘across’ rather than simply looking for ‘my’ content” – Journal Editor, UK

“Good to see a modern uncluttered design and, importantly, easy to see/access key features.” – Mike Smith, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Maps

“Modern, clean, open design”– Society Officer, UK

It’s here: the brand new Taylor & Francis Online. Over the past year, our digital team have been working hard to redesign our journals platform, using feedback and analytics data to shape and inform changes to improve the experience for users. Expect to see your journal showcased on a slick new platform that clears away clutter and enables readers to get straight to the heart of research published in your journal.

What are your favorite features? Be sure to tell us using the #TFrefresh on Facebook or Twitter. In the meantime, here’s 10 of ours:

  1. Journal titles and covers are elevated, giving your journal stronger branding and making it easier for readers to discover, identify and access your journal.
  2. New journal page layouts create more clearly highlighted articles, calls for papers, or journal news items.
  3. Journal home pages now include the option for a very short introduction to the journal so readers can find out about your journal at a glance.
  4. Improved video display in HTML5 provides more impact for journals with video abstracts or video content.
  5. The entire site is now fully responsive to any device. But what does that mean? Wherever users are, whether using a laptop, tablet or mobile, the screen will adapt to fit that size. On every screen the pages will be just as readable and with all the same functions.
  6. Readers can find your journal more easily: multi-faceted search makes finding journals simpler and faster, with options to filter by subject, publication date and access options.
  7. Article metrics are now clearly visible at the very top of every article page, including views, citations, and Altmetric data.
  8. A new article display organizes figures & data, references, citations and article statistics into tabs, plus highlights readers' access options and the article PDF, making your journal more reader-friendly.
  9. You can find information and guidance for editors in one quick click, with the link on the homepage taking you straight here to Editor Resources.
  10. You could appear on the home page! See the story behind the picture of this month’s homepage photo, our very own Paul Taylor, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Systematic Palaeontology.
