JSTOR Makes Early Journal Content Available For Free

JSTOR announced it is making journal content published prior to 1923 in the U.S. and prior to 1870 elsewhere freely available to anyone, anywhere in the world. This “Early Journal Content” includes discourse and scholarship in the arts and humanities, economics and politics, and in mathematics and other sciences. It includes nearly 500,000 articles from more than 200 journals. This represents 6% of the content on JSTOR.

While JSTOR currently provides access to scholarly content to people through a growing network of more than 7,000 institutions in 153 countries, there are independent scholars and other people that JSTOR is still not reaching in this way. Making the Early Journal Content freely available is a first step in a larger effort to provide more access options to the content on JSTOR for these individuals.

The Early Journal Content will be released on a rolling basis. A quick video tutorial about how to access this content is also available, as well as an FAQ. Download a brief program description that lists some Early Journal Content highlights.

The announcement included the following statement:

We encourage broad use of the Early Journal Content, including the ability to reuse it for non-commercial purposes. We ask that you acknowledge JSTOR as the source of the content and provide a link back to our site. Please also be considerate of other users and do not use robots or other devices to systematically download these works as this may be disruptive to our systems. For more information, you can read a new section about Early Journal Content in our Terms & Conditions of Use.
