Pricing

Our purpose is to support and facilitate research in Australia. We are a not-for-profit organisation, and we keep our access charges as low as possible so that more researchers can afford to use ANFF-Q.

Pricing for public sector researchers is based on marginal costs only. International researchers will be charged at industry rates. A full listing of costs for each user category is given in below.

All prices are in AUD and exclusive of GST.
