JSTOR and AAAS further expand access to Science

JSTOR and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) are pleased to announce they have renewed their longstanding agreement to preserve and make available over 100 years of Science via the JSTOR platform. JSTOR and AAAS first began working together in 1998 when Science was among the earliest journals converted from print to digital form by JSTOR. For nearly 20 years, JSTOR has hosted issues of Science dating back to 1880 – more than 480,000 pages of content in total, covering everything from electricity to genomics. JSTOR makes the journal available through several of its collections to libraries around the world, where it can be used by students and researchers working across a wide array of disciplines. With this new agreement, JSTOR and the AAAS renew their commitment to ensuring access to this long history of scientific research and to continuing to add new issues of Science to JSTOR each year.
