Total cost of ownership
Griffith ePress cost of $2,285 puts it as less than a per
library subscription cost but more than an average APC
cost.
Other benefits:
• the support of niche research and teaching fields;
• the provision of a platform for early career academics
and students to enter the scholarly communication
environment; and
• the positive contribution to Griffith’s performance in
research assessment exercises.
