Benefits for Researchers

Open Access Management

At ChronosHub, our goal is to ensure that researchers can immerse themselves fully in their research, and reduce or maybe even avoid the challenges and complexities that characterize the publishing process. If you’re new to the publishing process, you may not have complete overview of the administrative activities ahead of you. We’ve outlined them for you here to help you out in case your institution doesn’t use our Open Access Management Platform. 

If you’ve published before, you probably know exactly what we’re talking about and how much time you could save if the publishing journey were more automized and tailored to meet your needs.

How does it work?

With the ChronosHub Journal Guide, as a researcher, you’re guided to where you can publish your work in compliance with your institution’s agreements and your research funder’s policies.  

Our Journal Guide includes about 45,000 journals and enables you as the researcher and author to see for each journal if it’s compliant with your research funder’s policy and if there are conditions to comply with in your institution’s agreements. You can also submit to many of the journals directly through ChronosHub. Upon acceptance, ChronosHub supports you, so you don’t need to worry about compliance issues, payments, or reporting back to your institution or research funder.

How does ChronosHub make publishing easier for researchers?

  • You log into our Journal Finder, where you can browse, search, filter, sort, and compare more than 45,000 journals to find the right journal to publish in without worrying about compliance issues with your research funder’s policies.
  • Select a funder to see which journals offer a publishing route that's compliant with the funder’s policy.
  • You save time when you submit your manuscript directly through ChronosHub to the journals that ChronosHub currently covers as you don’t have to register in the journals’ different submission systems.
  • Once the manuscript has been accepted, you can rest assured that it’s compliant with the funders’ policies and that all fees are taken care of.
  • You don’t have to spend time on reporting back to funders or the institutions. ChronosHub takes care of it.
  • Invoice? Not your problem. You’ll just send it to us, and we take care of that, too.

What others say about us

This initiative is truly remarkable, and it makes me very happy to see the changes that are now happening in the publishing landscape. A compliment and much appreciation to all of you making this possible. I'll be sure to submit my next paper directly through ChronosHub.

Thank you very much for this straightforward procedure. Despite my initial concern I must admit that, so far, ChronosHub seems to make things easier. What a pleasure!
