More than 20,000 research reports from 113 policy institutes are freely accessible to everyone on JSTOR. The open research reports are discoverable alongside journals, books, and primary sources, and are clearly labelled as their own content type. We continually add reports as they become available.
Offering open research reports is part of our ongoing effort to broaden the free and open content on JSTOR and Artstor. They join thousands of Open Access ebooks, millions of freely accessible images through Artstor’s Public Collections, and a new initiative for institutions to host their open primary source collections on JSTOR.
Why Research Reports on JSTOR?
Community input revealed that although research reports were generally freely available outside of JSTOR, they were hard to find, not easily discoverable alongside relevant material, and it was difficult for students to identify which were most credible. We have curated this hard-to-find policy research from reputable institutes (based on faculty, librarian, and expert input), made it easily discoverable alongside journals and books on JSTOR, and preserved this content for future generations.

- Centre for Conflict Resolution
- Centre for European Policy Studies

- Institute for Global Environmental Strategies
