|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
|The number of funding requests were not as high as we had anticipated for the first year of the agreement. Around 20% of the credit was not used, we agreed with Taylor & Francis to give the option of carrying over some of the credit for the next year. The remaining credit was used to fund articles from the previous year. As for the second year, we did not have enough credit to keep up with the number of requests. Taylor & Francis also created an online presentation for researchers to give them tips on publishing. The Taylor & Francis system was useful in easing the process for both the end-user and the researchers.|
