Price list

Most of our work is custom and tailored to a certain budget and specific set of needs. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a price indication to help you budget your project.

This list of standardized items will give you an indication of what we do, and at which fee. Is your budget limited? We help you choose a form that creates the biggest impact. For each project we create a fixed project price (without any surprises afterwards).

The prices mentioned on this page are excluding VAT.


Choose between our lean and basic website package for researchers on a budget, or talk to us about a custom quote when you need to dazzle the world with your study results.

With a website from The Online Scientist comes the guarantee that you can maintain and update the site yourself. We do offer those services as well of course, so if you want help with updates, maintenance, content or hosting, just let us know! Inquire about the possibilities and configurations via email, or fill out our website optimizer to summarize your needs and wishes.

E-learning development is always custom, but many people ask us for the ‘ballpark prices’ of good e-learning.

We maintain a high standard for our e-learning courses: they are evidence-based and actually improve retention of content. That’s why we usually don’t develop “click-through courses” where you passively go through video and text by the click of a button – e-learning can be so much more! So if you want high-quality courses that engage and inspire students, then contact us to discuss your project, or fill out our e-learning optimizer.

(These prices are based on our own experience with projects, but they are supported by the research of Chapman Alliance and their How Long Does it Take to Create Learning? presentation on SlideShare.)
