Add new content and reduce recurring spend with one-time payment options

Archival Journals

You can use one-time funds to add new JSTOR content and collections, or convert collections under the standard AAF model to one-time payment. Institutions can also split the fee over two fiscal years. Investing in one-time payment for archive collections also lowers your annual fee (AAF) for our full journals and primary sources model option. Learn more about fees on JSTOR.

One-time fee options are available for a number of Archival Journal collections, including Arts & Sciences I–XV, Life Sciences, Business IV, Hebrew Journals, Jewish Studies, Ireland, Lives of Literature, Public Health, 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, ProQuest’s OASIS or Rialto marketplaces, or through an approved local JSTOR representative. Institutions can also invest in affordable, sustainable, open access monographs via our Path to Open program.
