Share your content openly where research begins

Unlock the potential of your institution’s special collections by making them freely available on JSTOR, the platform researchers, faculty, and students already know and use.

By sharing on JSTOR, your collections will:

  • Reach millions of researchers around the world
  • Join the research workflow, integrated alongside relevant books, journals, and primary source materials
  • Appear in an environment with robust tools that aid discovery, use, and encourage connections for research and instruction

Key benefits

The ideal environment and audience
Your content will be discovered in JSTOR alongside journal articles, ebooks, primary sources, and images from Artstor. All this on a platform designed for and used by more than 81 million scholars and students across 170 countries and territories every year.

Openly available
Your collections will be fully accessible—not behind a paywall or isolated on an unknown site. You can easily and clearly convey terms of use in your metadata and descriptors.

Increased awareness of your institution
Your institution will also have its own landing page on JSTOR. This landing page facilitates browsing, sub-collection groupings, and searching within your collections. Your institution will gain visibility through attribution, branding, and linking.

A robust platform for research and learning
Your content will benefit from the features of the JSTOR platform and interface, including full-text search; citation management tools, filtering and faceting; a IIIF-compliant viewer; content download and sharing; as well as innovative research tools such as Text Analyzer and Workspace. And we will provide you with usage statistics.

An effortless process
If you already have collections on a site, we can harvest them, making it easy to add them to JSTOR. And if you are a JSTOR Forum user, you can do it yourself in a matter of minutes, not days. Forget the hassles and expenses of maintaining outdated technology and infrastructure and leave your worries behind about preservation, discovery, and use.
