JSTOR’s Early Journal Content (EJC) makes articles from hundreds of journals freely available to the public on the JSTOR platform. This includes journal content published prior to the last 95 years in the United States, or prior to the last 143 years if initially published internationally.

You can find EJC articles by searching JSTOR and choosing its open content, or via our search portal for all open content on JSTOR.

Anyone may use the Early Journal Content for noncommercial purposes with acknowledgement to JSTOR as the source of the files. We also provide a free Early Journal Content data bundle for text mining purposes that includes full-text OCR and article and title-level metadata.
