Government and non-profit research institutions

Classifications

To determine your participation fees for archival journal collections, JSTOR classifies government and non-profit research institutions based on size and amount of research its faculty and students conduct.

There are five JSTOR classifications for Government and Non Profit Research Institutions: Very Small, Small, Medium, Large, and Very Large.

Classification is based on size, budget, and library holdings at your organization. To receive your JSTOR classification, contact us at participation@jstor.org with the following information:

  1. Total number of staff at your organization or institution
  2. Number of researchers and library staff
  3. Total operating budget of your organization or institution (latest year available)
  4. Materials budget of your library (latest year available)
  5. Number of active serials subscriptions (print and electronic) your organization or institution holds
