ChronosHub webinar

In collaboration with ChronosHub, the FNR is organising webinar for researchers on how to use ChronosHub on Monday, 15 of February between from 14:00 – 15:30 CET. Researchers currently supported by (or planning to apply for) FNR funding are encouraged to attend, as this will have a direct impact on their publishing/payment activities. *FAQ now available*

What is ChronosHub?

To simplify the processes related to the 2017 and 2021 FNR Open Access Policies and the Open Access Fund, the FNR has partnered with ChronosHub, an Open Access management platform. This collaboration will facilitate the compliancy check with the FNR Open Access Policies and the direct payment of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for authors and institutions and will replace the FNR Open Access Fund Call, starting for peer-reviewed articles published in 2021 and thereafter.

What are the consequences for 2021 and thereafter?

The Open Access Fund Call in 2021 will be the last and will be open for all peer-reviewed articles published in 2020. All FNR (co)–funded grants, for which an Open Access Policy applies, that publish a scientific article in 2021 and thereafter, must submit their manuscript through ChronosHub to have the eligible amount of APCs directly paid by the FNR.

To log into ChronosHub, please visit: Through ChronosHub, it is possible to directly check if journals are compliant with the FNR Open Access policy. Once a journal is selected, ChronosHub will take you to the journal’s submission page, or enable you an easy submission directly to the journal through Chronos. Upon acceptance, ChronosHub will take care of checking the compliancy and paying the respective amount of APCs for you to the publisher. After payment, if remaining APCs are still left to be paid, you will receive an invoice by ChronosHub. If you have additional questions on the workflow to follow or have received an APC invoice for an eligible publication, please send a mail to
