A new service
for grantees & employees
WHO IS IT FOR?
Chronos is currently available to Gates grantees and employees. We anticipate making Chronos available to a wider audience sometime next year.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Chronos processes and pays publisher Article Processing Charges (APCs) on behalf of grantees and employees, conducts policy compliancy checks, and tracks publishing activity, along with its impact.
WHY OPEN ACCESS?
The Gates Foundation strives to accelerate the impact of the research it funds. Chronos will enable grantees and employees to focus on the research – not the process of publishing research.
Who do I contact for support?
We’re here for you.
For help with using Chronos, please email the Chronos Support Team. If you have questions about the Gates Foundation’s Open Access Policy, you can email the Gates Open Access Team. If you’re unsure where you should submit your question (we know it can be complicated), email the Chronos Support team first.
With all communications, it’s helpful to include your OPPID and the name of your program officer to expedite your service request.
