For cancellations made to subscriptions ending after the start date of the Publisher's participation in the Current Scholarship Program (2011) and later, libraries will have the following Post-Cancelation Access (PCA) options:
Libraries may purchase PCA for 10% of the then-current list price of the title, and JSTOR will provision and maintain access on its platform as long as this fee, called the Annual CSP PCA fee, is paid. JSTOR will provision PCA on the JSTOR platform from the Digital Availability Date (DAD) through the last issue purchased. For Digital Availability Dates, go to the Current Scholarship Program title list.
However, if the library participates in a JSTOR archive collection that includes the title being claimed, or the library is a Portico participant, JSTOR will provision PCA on the JSTOR platform at no charge, from the DAD through the last issue purchased, as long as the library continues to participate in the collection or remains a Portico participant.
Please refer to 7.3 Section of our Terms and Conditions for full description of the policies.
Placing a PCA Claim
1) JSTOR participants should contact JSTOR Support, giving the title and the subscribed years and volumes.
2) Support staff will verify this information with the publisher, check the library’s Portico participation status if applicable, and check the status of the subscription to the relevant archive collection.
3) If the claim is verified, support staff will provision access, advise the appropriate person in the library that this has been done, and, if appropriate, send an invoice.
*** Subscription agents are welcome to send this document to their customers to answer PCA questions, but PCA claims must come directly from the library to the support team.
JSTOR creates and enters new cataloging records or updates existing cataloging records in OCLC for each title, current or previous, in the archive. The records include the URL for each title in the 856 MARC field.
Currently, the only way to locate all the cataloging records for each title in a JSTOR collection is to conduct a title-by-title search in OCLC. When reviewing records for potential downloading to your local system, please ensure that there is not a MARC field indicating “Record reported for deletion.” In such cases, a different record should be located and reviewed for downloading.
If you have questions about what kind of content best suits the needs of your institution, your institutional participation coordinator will be able to able to offer guidance and assistance. You may contact JSTOR Outreach & Participation Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
