JSTOR offers a variety of programs and services to support your goals of ensuring preservation, broadening access, and encouraging discovery of your content.

Archival journals

Join a diverse group of nearly 900 publishers from over 25 countries who work with JSTOR to preserve and make their content digitally available.

Archival and thematic collections are curated by the JSTOR editorial team, and they build on our strengths in core disciplines or target new, emerging areas of scholarship. For each collection, we review the availability of existing resources currently in the field, consult library advisors, scholars and academic societies about content they would find valuable, and survey faculty and researchers for feedback.

After identifying publications for inclusion, we work with publishers and content providers on licensing arrangements that allow JSTOR to include content going back to volume 1, issue 1 of journals. This approach is driven by the need to establish priorities among the vast number of journals published around the world and to devote limited resources to those journals that most closely fit our mission.

Journal hosting

Our Journal Hosting program is ideal for publishers looking for an online host for current issues and/or subscription management support, but who do not require full publishing services. For publishers with journals that are print-only, JSTOR is a trusted partner who can provide a transition into electronic publishing on a familiar platform.

Journal Hosting allows you to raise the visibility of your publications via our highly used platform while choosing from a suite of flexible services – including production, electronic subscription administration, and marketing – based on the level of support you need.

To maintain the quality of scholarship that researchers expect on JSTOR, publications in the journal hosting program need to meet certain criteria and undergo a review process.

Publishers who already have journals in the JSTOR Archive Collections can enable access to more recent content beyond their moving wall for all journal subscribers on the same research platform. Questions? Contact us.

Additional programs and services

JSTOR offers more options to establish additional revenue streams, identify new users and markets, and provide access to society members and/or individual subscribers.

Publisher Sales Service
Make your journals’ single articles and issues available for purchase on the JSTOR platform. The program is designed to help reach users outside of JSTOR’s pool of licensing institutions and to meet user access demands while establishing an additional revenue stream for publishers. You set the base price for articles and issues and can change prices at any time.

Member access
Societies can grant access to the complete archive of their publications for their members or individual subscribers through the JSTOR platform. Fees are tiered according to the number of members in each society.

Advertising space
Run online ads on your journal pages at no additional cost. We ask that you restrict the use of the ads to promote:

  • subscriptions to your own journal(s) or other publications
  • news or announcements (e.g., annual conferences, calls for papers, etc.)
  • society memberships

Ad space is available for sale to third parties only for publishers in our hosting program.

Promotional materials
JSTOR is happy to work with you on customized ads, presentations, and copy to publicize your participation. Reach out to us or to your  JSTOR primary contact at least three weeks in advance of deadline.
