What is Moderation
As an academic publisher, we encourage scholarly communication and debate. We are keen to have a lively and informed range of views that broaden and deepen debate while staying focussed on the central topic. We therefore moderate our discussions.
Every comment submitted to a fully moderated discussion is checked by a Taylor & Francis moderator before it is published on the site. We try to publish as many comments as we can, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that all comments submitted will be published. Our moderators always work closely with the journal’s Editor.
To submit comments to our moderated discussions you need to supply your name and email address with your first comment. Depending on the computer settings you use, the system may or may not recognise you as a returning user. If it does not, simply re-enter your name and email address when you want to comment again.
If the discussion on an article is deemed to be finished, no more comments will be allowed to be added to it, and the discussion will become archived, to allow visitors to know that these are now closed and are for information only. The debate will remain permanently accessible. The moderator has the right to choose when to archive the debate. You can complain about any comment you see on the Discussion Forum using the contact the moderator form.
We at Taylor & Francis also welcome any feedback from you on the moderation or discussion process here.
