The new read and publish agreement, Taylor & Francis’ first in UAE, will support the University’s mission to provide impactful societal and research contributions, by ensuring everyone everywhere can access the latest UAEU research outcomes. Corresponding UAEU authors will be supported to publish open access articles in all Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals, both hybrid and full OA.
