  6. 6. In context According to the Finch Report we can expect an average of £1,750 Subsequent reports also suggest that the costs for open access journals average between £1.5k and £2k, which is broadly in line with the average level of APCs paid by the Wellcome Trust in 2010, at just under £1.5k. (Finch, p61) University of Edinburgh regularly receives invoices from Elsevier for $5,000 (£3,287 at today’s rates) At this price, 8 articles would come to £26,296… It is clear to see that OJS represents a value-for-money solution which gives control over publishing back to academic.
