Aries Systems Corporation, a leading technology workflow solutions provider for the scholarly publishing community, and ChronosHub, a leading platform for streamlining the publishing workflow, are pleased to announce the extension of their partnership to facilitate the collection of APC processing during the editorial workflow on behalf of their shared customers.
The partnership offers a seamless APC billing and collection option designed to serve publishers, institutions, and funders using Aries’ Editorial Manager® (EM). This joint APC management solution fully integrates with editorial and production workflows, thereby accelerating publishers’ time to market, improving the Author experience, and minimizing the operational costs associated with managing Author fees. Powered by ChronosHub, where the APC pricing and institutional agreements are held, different publishing options will be presented to Authors directly within EM, providing clear price transparency and the ability to accept a quotation upon initial manuscript submission.
“Aries is dedicated to providing its customers with innovative technology to streamline the peer review process”, stated Aries Managing Director, Jennifer Fleet. “Aries is thrilled to strengthen both its relationship and partnership with ChronosHub to offer EM customers another option for APC billing and collection.”
Christian Grubak, co-CEO at ChronosHub adds, “We’re excited to be taking our collaboration with Aries Systems to the next level by extending our integration with Editorial Manager. It will allow us to improve our service tremendously by offering enhanced, streamlined APC billing and collection!”
