Taylor & Francis article access

August 10, 2018

Taylor and Francis seem to be having some technical problems this morning. Clicking on an article link brings up an error message. The problem is affecting all Taylor and Francis customers. The work around until they fix it, is to click on the journal title, navigate to the article you require and open the PDF. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.
