Reduce recurring spend with one-time payment options

You can use one-time funds to add new JSTOR content and collections, or convert collections licensed five or more years under the standard AAF model to one-time payment. Institutions can also split the fee over two fiscal years. Learn more about fees on JSTOR.

Archival Journals

One-time fees are offered for institutions starting access to a number of Archival Journal collections: Arts & Sciences I–XV, Life Sciences, Business IV, Hebrew Journals, Jewish StudiesIreland, Lives of Literature, Security Studies, and Sustainability.  Because JSTOR’s journal archives expand each year, your one-time investment continues to grow in perpetuity.

Primary Sources

One-time fees are also available for three Primary Sources collections: 19th Century British PamphletsStruggles for Freedom: Southern Africa, and World Heritage Sites: Africa.


All ebooks acquired through Books at JSTOR come with unlimited use and no recurring fees. Our flexible purchasing models include title-by-title selection, subject collections, Evidence-Based Acquisition, and Demand-Driven Acquisition. Libraries can also order through GOBI Library Solutions or through an approved local JSTOR representative.
