The cost of answering a question

If extensive research is necessary to answer your question, you can have this research carried out by a NIOD staff member. NIOD charges a research fee of €50 per hour for this service.

Prior to the research, you will receive a quotation with an estimate of the research time required. This quotation will remain valid for a fortnight. If the quotation is approved, NIOD aims to send the answer within four weeks. The invoice will be sent after completion of the research.

The research is carried out meticulously by our staff. However, no guarantee can be given that the answers sought are present in our collections.
