Chronos has entered a collaboration with Frontiers to centralize and further simplify the invoicing process for APCs associated with articles by Gates Foundation grantees published in any Frontiers journal.
We are delighted to announce that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has formed a central invoicing agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.
The Gates Foundation, in line with its open access policy, supports its grantees in publishing open access by covering article processing charges (APCs).
Information for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-funded authors:
When submitting an article, under the “Payment and funding information” section, you must select the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” in the “Funding information” field. Please ensure that your Gates grant number is included both in the Funding statement during submission and in the manuscript text.
For more information, please see the Gates Foundation’s Open Access Policy FAQ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
