Beginning January 1, 2011, JSTOR launched the Current Scholarship Program (CSP). There are two parts to this program:

  • JSTOR acts as the online hosting and online delivery service on behalf of its publishers. In 2017, CSP will include 224 journal titles on behalf of 46 publishers.

  • JSTOR also acts as the subscription processing service for these titles. Subscription agents wishing to order these titles where there is an electronic component to the subscription, on behalf of their customers must, with exceptions noted below, order through JSTOR.

All subscription options provide current issue access back to the "born digital" date for each title, and access remains fixed back to this date with each additional subscription year. JSTOR accepts orders and payments from subscription agents on behalf of their library customers for Current Scholarship product offered in the Current Scholarship Program (CSP). For all questions for about how JSTOR works with subscription agents, please contact


JSTOR grants 3% agent commission on all orders received via Online Data Interchange in ICEDIS format. A minimum of 20 orders must be included in one batch to qualify for the discount. You can read more about EDI and ICEDIS at

Back issues

JSTOR does not sell back issues of titles that participate in the Current Scholarship Program. To purchase single issues or issues published prior to the current volume you will have to contact the corresponding publisher directly.


The 2017 Current Scholarship Program pricing list is available for download here. Additional documents for download are available in the CSP 2017 downloads section on the right.

JSTOR does not accept orders for Archive Collections from subscription agents. If the agent’s customer wants JSTOR to send the invoice to the agent, the agent’s customer must write to asking for this. JSTOR will decide on a case-by-case basis whether to allow this or not.

Tiers and Classifications
Some publishers in the Current Scholarship Program base their pricing on tiers within a given community. The tier into which a library fits is determined by its JSTOR classification. Agents that need to know the JSTOR classification of an institution should write to  JSTOR will determine the classifications and respond.

Publisher Packages
Some of the publishers in CSP are offering savings for libraries who order packages of the publisher’s titles.

Please note: In order to enjoy these savings, libraries and agents must specify on the order to JSTOR that the library wishes to purchase the “Publisher Package.” Simply ordering all the publisher’s titles one at a time will not result in savings. Agents should therefore create individual records in their title files for these packages.

All Packages in CSP must be ordered via a single source (i.e. all titles in the Pennsylvania State University Press Package must be ordered through one agent or directly through JSTOR). Packages that come in as single title orders at different times from different agents, etc. will not be processed as a package and discounts may not be honored as a result.

Use the package rates from the CSP price list; do not attempt to calculate total costs based on discount percentages.


The Complete Current Scholarship Collection offers an average 9% total savings on all current journal content for the 2017 subscription year. The collection includes more than 200 titles from 46 leading publishers, providing seamless access to the full runs of journals on the JSTOR platform.*

Pricing for this collection is inclusive of discounts on publisher packages.
