“This Chinese website will help editors to understand the standard publishing process, making it more clear what to do and how to fulfil our role at each step.”
Gao Jingyu, Academic Editor of International Critical Thought at Editor Round Table.
Just launched is TandFChina.com, Taylor & Francis’ new online hub for the scholarly community in China. It offers key resources for authors, researchers, journal editors, research librarians, and learned societies in Mandarin, as well as being a gateway to all Taylor & Francis content, both books and journals, and from all imprints (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, CRC Press and Garland Science).
With more than 70,000 China-based researchers published in Taylor & Francis journals in 2015 (almost 5x those publishing in 2010), and that number growing, providing clear guidance that helps researchers understand and navigate the publishing process is vital.
The launch of TandFChina.com brings this to Chinese authors in Mandarin, with key information on such areas as selecting and submitting to a journal, highlighting their published research, and Open Access publishing. Links to English language editing services, and instructional videos and infographics in Mandarin on such topics as peer review and publishing ethics all come together to aid researchers based in China, as well as Chinese scholars anywhere in the world who want to read information in their native language.
Not only is there lots for authors (whether you’re publishing for the first time or are more experienced), there are also dedicated sections for journal editors, research librarians, and learned societies. Latest news will also offer regional updates and insights on the scholarly publishing landscape within China.
But what do your fellow journal editors think? The sneak peek at recent editors’ round tables saw Xin Jin, part of the editorial team on Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Letters, comment:
“This Chinese website of the Taylor & Francis Group will greatly enhance the interaction between publishers, editors and authors; enable Chinese editors to catch up with the latest news from Taylor & Francis and the overall publishing industry … Congratulations and thanks!”
