...more about STAR

STAR covers the full range of cutting edge, highly-ranked research in every subject area we publish - from Anthropology to Zoology and from Area Studies to Physics - from Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Biological & Physical Sciences. Taylor & Francis hope that the access given to research in such an extensive range of subjects for developing countries will strengthen the quality of research coming from those regions and allow authors to submit articles with increased confidence.

STAR aims to:

  • Encourage informed debate in the worldwide academic community
  • Enable researchers to enrich findings and to update references
  • Contribute towards higher levels of article acceptance

STAR is available to researchers in Africa, in South Asia and many parts of South East Asia. STAR uses an innovative voucher system. Once the voucher has been downloaded it can be activated whenever the researcher chooses, so it fits in with the researcher's requirements giving them a month's free access when they need it.
