JSTOR provides museums with access to nearly all archival journal collections for one set of fees: Arts & Sciences I – XV, All Thematic Collections, Life Sciences, Business IV, Ecology & Botany II, and 19th Century British Pamphlets
Museums may also choose to add the Jewish Studies Collection, the Hebrew Journals Collection, the Ireland Collection, Struggles for Freedom: Southern Africa, World Heritage Sites: Africa, and Global Plants for a separate set of fees.
Subscriptions fees are based on your institution’s JSTOR classification. There are five JSTOR classifications for Museums: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Institution Operating Budget: The overall operating budget for the latest year available
- Library Materials Budget: The budget for library acquisitions
- Periodicals: The number of active serial subscriptions
- Curatorial and Library Staff: The full time employment (FTE) of assistant, associate, and full curators, and the FTE of library professionals and support staff
Fees are effective through December 31, 2020.
