The GetFTR pricing model (publishers)

GetFTR is a service and enabling infrastructure that adds value by streamlining access to research from discovery tools and scholarly platforms. In order to stimulate adoption, GetFTR is free to use for integrators.

To ensure a stable and high-quality service that can be sustained over time, GetFTR uses the following tiered fee structure for publishers:


Total number of journal DOIs more than Standard annual fee Discounted annual fee (if total number of journal DOIs is >40x yearly publication rate)
$5,000 * $5,000
100,000 $10,000 $5,000
200,000 $15,000 $10,000
500,000 $30,000 $15,000
1,000,000 $50,000 $30,000
Founding members $200,000 N/A

N.B. All pricing is in US dollars. 

The primary driver that sets the tier is the total number of journal DOIs (i.e. aggregated over all time). However, a discount applies if the total number of journal DOIs is greater than 40 times the yearly average of DOIs as measured over the three most recent calendar years.

For all DOI counts, CrossRef data is deemed to be the authoritative source.

*In an effort to support smaller publishers and societies, GetFTR will waive the annual fee for any publisher with less than 40,000 DOIs that uses using a journals platform provided by one of our partner vendors. T&C’s apply – please contact GetFTR to learn more
