In 2004 Taylor & Francis merged with Informa and has been its academic publishing division since then. More recent acquisitions include Dove Medical Press in 2017, which specializes in medical journals; and, in 2020, F1000. F1000 provides open research publishing venues that support data deposition and sharing to research funders and institutions. These include the European Commission, Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
