Pricing

You can find out the exact cost of the items you want on our ordering interface, but here’s a general guide to our service charges

On Demand charges a service fee for supplying items or conducting in-depth searches. We change our prices every August, so keep an eye on this page for updated price lists.

Here’s a quick overview of our most important prices.  Prices for different customer groups and for all of our services can be found in the PDF downloads below.

Note that copyright charges may apply and you may be able to order from us more cheaply or even free through your workplace or university.
