Taylor & Francis acquires Academic and Professional lists of Allen & Unwin

Taylor & Francis Books Ltd are pleased to announce the acquisition of the Academic and Professional books lists of Allen & Unwin, comprising over 700 titles in HSS disciplines. All other publishing activity from Allen & Unwin is unaffected by this acquisition and continues to be performed by Allen & Unwin. From 1 July 2020 these academic and professional titles will be distributed, together with all other Taylor & Francis books, from XL Express. Allen & Unwin will continue to sell these titles on behalf of Taylor & Francis until the 30th June 2020, according to their standard terms and conditions.

During the coming weeks we wish to ensure that any disruption is minimised, therefore we would like to draw your attention to the following important details regarding the change:


Effective from the 1 July 2020, all orders should be sent to Taylor & Francis Customer Service, XL Express,


Returns of any of Allen & Unwin’s academic and professional titles can be sent in the usual manner to United Books Distributors up until 30th June 2020. After that date, returns requests should be directed to XL Express. Taylor & Francis will accept returns of Allen & Unwin’s academic and professional titles, even if purchased from Allen & Unwin, under the same returns’ terms offered by Allen & Unwin.


All payments for outstanding balances must continue to be made payable to the office that originated the relevant invoices and by the due date. All future orders through Taylor & Francis Customer Service will be invoiced under Taylor & Francis’ discounts and payment terms.
