What do I have to do?

When you, as a corresponding author, have had your article accepted and verified by the library, Taylor & Francis will send you an email in which you are asked to sign a publishing agreement concerning open access and also choose one of two Creative Commons licences for your article. Such a licence will let the reader know how she or he can use the article. The two different licences you can choose are:

CC BY = BY stands for "attribution". Choosing CC BY means that you allow others to use, share, and modify your work, even in commercial contexts. Others who use your work in any way must give you credit. 

CC BY-NC-ND = NC stands for "Non-commercial" and ND stands for "No Derivatives". Choosing CC BY-NC-ND means that you allow others to share the article but only in non-commercial contexts. Others are not allowed to modify it without asking you for permission first. Others who use your work in any way must give you credit.

In most cases it is to your advantage to choose CC BY since the article will have the greatest dissemination and impact. Choosing a CC BY-NC-ND license will unnecessarily limit the dissemination and impact of your article.
