Single-site versus mulit-site definition:

A single site is defined as a single physical campus of an institution containing multiple buildings, with an unlimited number of users affiliated with that campus (including alumni) accessing from any point within the institution or remotely via a secure server. Satellite campuses located in different cities or countries whose FTE is under 500 can also be included as part of the main campus under the single-site definition.

A multi-site is defined as an institution that has campuses in separate cities whose full-time equivalent (FTE) is over 500.

We can offer custom pricing to consortia groups and multi-site institutions. Please contact Carolyn Grant for a customized quote and include the following information:

  1. Number of sites involved
  2. Full address of each site
  3. Full time equivalents (FTE)
  4. Number of relevant FTEs at each of the sites, which include:
    • Academic institutions: total number of academic staff and students and researchers
    • Hospitals: total number of researchers
    • Corporate institutions: total number of researchers
    • Government institutions, regulatory agencies, etc.: total number of researchers
