Natural sciences and the environment represent a substantial number of the 60,000 titles in the Taylor & Francis back catalogue, which is dominated by academic, scientific and specialist titles.
The Taylor comes from Richard Taylor who launched the Philosophical Magazine in London in 1798; Francis from chemist Richard Francis who joined Richard Taylor in 1852, creating the company familiar today.
Taylor & Francis became a limited company in 1936 with leading scientists as directors and shareholders, and the publisher has continued to promote high quality writing on contemporary scientific research. Taylor & Francis has expanded in recent years, acquiring famous imprints such as Routledge and CRC.
