A more economical and simplified model
Like community colleges, JSTOR is committed to expanding and enhancing access to knowledge and education. To help, we developed a community college fee model that is:
- easier with one comprehensive collection versus individually licensed collections
- all-inclusive, with access to all archival journals and primary sources available for license on JSTOR
- economical with more than 60% of participating community colleges seeing a decrease in their current fees
- flexible, with options for an annual subscription or a one-time payment for permanent access with no recurring fees
What is included
JSTOR provides community colleges with low cost access to the JSTOR Archival Journals and Primary Sources Collection, a single comprehensive collection containing all archival journals and primary sources available for license on JSTOR.
The collection includes more than 2,800 top scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Journal issues start from the first issue and extend up to a publication date usually set in the past three to five years.
Millions of primary sources from four individual collections are also included, featuring pamphlets, manuscripts, letters, oral histories, government documents, images, 3D models, spatial data, type specimens, drawings, paintings, and more.
As a mission-based not-for-profit organization, we are committed to providing affordable fees that fit many different communities and institution types. Fees for community colleges are based on Full Time Enrollment (FTE) size split into three tiers: Small (FTE under 1,000); Medium (FTE between 1,000 and 10,000); Large (FTE over 10,000). Options for an annual subscription or a one-time payment for permanent access with no recurring fees are available.
Rapidly growing free and open content
We have also introduced new functionality and more diverse types of open content from publishers, libraries, archives, and museums, including more open images from Artstor and open primary source collections. These resources are complemented with essential Open Access scholarship and address the increased needs for remote teaching and learning.
