ChronosHub and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) are proud to announce a new collaboration for processing ASCE’s author fees, including article processing charges (APCs) for open access (OA) publications, as well as color charges for both OA and hybrid publications.
The service will go live for authors on January 4, 2023. ASCE authors will be guided through what would otherwise be an increasingly complicated process, allowing for a much simpler and less time-consuming author experience, through clear communication and a consistent workflow for all types of charges.
The collaboration includes an integration with ASCE’s peer review system, Aries Systems Editorial Manager, where authors can see an APC quotation during the submission process. Post-acceptance, authors are guided to the ASCE environment on the ChronosHub platform where APCs and/or color charges can be paid by credit card or invoice. Credit card payments are fully integrated via ASCE’s own payment gateway.
We are very excited to partner with ChronosHub to provide our authors with this new platform. As ASCE continues to grow its OA publishing options with the upcoming launch of our first gold OA journal, ASCE OPEN, we strive to offer exceptional service to our authors through the entire publishing process, including invoicing and payment.
It’s a pleasure for us to be able to assist ASCE on this journey to make the billing process easier for their authors. Fostering a simple and smooth author experience is key and we’re excited to have another publisher join our platform.
Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 150,000 civil engineers worldwide and is America's oldest national engineering society. ASCE works to raise awareness of the need to maintain and modernize the nation’s infrastructure using sustainable and resilient practices, advocates for increasing and optimizing investment in infrastructure, and improve engineering knowledge and competency.
Headquartered in Copenhagen, ChronosHub is an online platform meeting the needs of all stakeholders in the research community: funders, publishers, institutions, and researchers. ChronosHub supports authors to select suitable journals for their manuscript submissions by making funding policies and institutional agreements transparent. Through a collaborative approach, ChronosHub streamlines the publishing workflow for publishers, funders, and institutions for effective APC management, funding policy compliance, automated repository deposits, and OA reporting.
