AAAS Reverses Its Decision on Science Pullout From JSTOR

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS; www.aaas.org) announced it has reversed its earlier decision to pull its flagship publication, Science, from JSTOR (www.jstor.org), the scholarly electronic journals archive. Officials issued this very brief statement: "AAAS and JSTOR are pleased to announce that we have concluded an ongoing discussion and have been able to reach an agreement to continue what has been a very productive relationship between JSTOR and the journal Science."

Last summer, JSTOR announced that AAAS was ending its relationship with JSTOR, effective Dec. 31, 2007 (www.jstor.org/about/aaas_announce.html). AAAS, in an announcement in Science (www.sciencemag.org/marketing/jstor_partnership.dtl), cited a concern to control its content in the context of a rapidly changing business environment. AAAS had been working with JSTOR since 1998. The news unleashed a storm of comments on blogs and library lists over the following months, with some commenting that this move was counter to AAAS’s non-profit mission. A number of library organizations, including the International Coalition of Library Consortia, issued statements criticizing the decision and urging AAAS to reconsider. Apparently the activism paid off.
