Is the Artstor platform going away?

We do not have a timeline for sunsetting the Artstor platform at this stage. We are committed to keeping the current platform active until we can ensure JSTOR delivers an optimal experience for research, teaching, and learning with images. We will continue to update our community as this work progresses so that you have ample advance notice of a transition.

Are you continuing to add new collections to Artstor?

We continue to add new collections that extend Artstor’s cultural scope and disciplinary reach. This includes African, African American, and Asian content, and content in disciplines such as social justice and human geography, environmental studies, public health, and natural sciences.

Will this result in any fee changes for my Artstor subscription?

We have implemented a new fee structure for Artstor that reduces the cost for all institutions. This fee reduction is being phased in over 3 years for existing Artstor participants to ensure sustainability.

I have published collections that are only visible within my institution on Artstor. Is this supported on JSTOR?

Both public and institutional collections can be published to JSTOR via our Community Collections initiative.
