JSTOR Opens Journals to More Researchers

JSTOR recently launched the JPASS service to reach scholars outside traditional institutions. JPASS grants individual users access to 1,500 journals from JSTOR’s digital library for a monthly or annual subscription fee.

Researchers who are not affiliated with a university or other academic institution can purchase a JPASS subscription to read unlimited journal issues online (except current issues from the past 3–5 years), and download 10 articles per month using a MyJSTOR account assigned upon JPASS registration.

MyJSTOR also has options for setting up alerts for search terms or journals and saving and exporting citations. Users can save article downloads, which are accessible even after a JPASS subscription expires.

“JPASS is for everyone who needs affordable … high-quality, trusted research—whether for a few days at a time or on a regular basis,” according to Jennifer Farthing, the leader of individual access initiatives for JSTOR. JPASS users “include independent scholars, writers, business people, adjunct faculty, and life-long learners, among others.”

JSTOR launched the JPASS initiative in response to users who wanted to do more on JSTOR, she says.
