Taylor & Francis worked closely with Research Square to launch a language editing service for T&F authors. We were very happy with the resulting product and delighted to see good uptake from our authors.

Editorial Badges

Taking care of the basics of peer review

We ensure that manuscripts adhere to a high quality of reporting prior to being sent for review, thus allowing referees to focus only on the quality of the science. Our independent certifications take the form of a badge that demonstrates adherence to reporting and standards. Let us show you how our PreCheck, Reproducibility, and Sound Science Checks can be a service to editors and authors alike.

Video Abstracts

Make the research you publish more discoverable

Our video abstracts are designed to help increase the visibility of your published research. Our team of scientifically trained writers and animators create a 2-4 minute video abstract of the key results and context for any research paper. We remove technical jargon and use engaging visuals, making the research accessible to colleagues, collaborators, funders, and more. The final video can be posted on the article page, included in press kits, or simply given to the author to share. Each video references the journal and DOI for easy linking to the article of record on your website.
