JSTOR Introduces JPASS — Personal Access to Its Vast Digital Library of Journal Archives for Individuals

 

New York, NY— JSTOR, the not-for-profit digital library that is a widely-used resource for academic research, unveiled this week its latest effort to open its doors to people beyond universities, colleges, and high schools. Individuals can now get their own JPASS: a monthly or annual pass that provides access to 1,500 journals from JSTOR's archive collection.

 

JPASS offers people unlimited online reading from an expansive library of high quality journals across 50 subject areas and the ability to download up to 10 articles a month or 120 per year. JPASS holders also get a MyJSTOR account, enabling them to access JSTOR 24/7 from any device by simply logging in. In addition, this personalized access provides users with the ability to set up alerts for specific search terms or journals; to save and export citations; and, as a unique feature, to enjoy a personal library of saved article downloads, which are preserved and accessible to them—even if their JPASS expires.

 

"We are incredibly excited to be offering JPASS as an additional access option for JSTOR," said Jennifer Farthing, who is leading this and other individual access initiatives for the organization. "JPASS is for everyone who needs affordable, access to high-quality, trusted research—whether for a few days at a time or on a regular basis. It's a great option if you are not able to get ready access through an educational institution or public library or if you need access beyond JSTOR's free, limited reading program, Register & Read."

 

So just who are these future JPASS holders? "As one indication, nearly 1 million people have registered with JSTOR and are using Register & Read today." says Farthing. "Those that have told us about themselves include independent scholars, writers, business people, adjunct faculty, and life-long learners, among others. Many say they love our free reading program, but some tell us they'd love to be able to do more on JSTOR."

 

Now they can. JPASS fees range from $19.50 for a monthly to $199 for an annual pass. Discounts are being made available to JSTOR's Register & Read users as well as to members of scholarly societies whose journals are included in the JPASS Collection.
