JSTOR is a shared digital library created in 1995 to help university and college libraries free up space on their shelves, save costs, and provide greater levels of access to more content than ever before. More generally, by digitizing content to high standards and supporting its long-term preservation, JSTOR also aims to help libraries and academic publishers transition their activities from print to digital operations. The aim is to expand access to scholarly content around the world and to preserve it for future generations.
Starting from 2016 the JSTOR consortium project is covered by 50% subsidy by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The subsidy will be granted in 2019 as well.
JSTOR currently includes more than 2,400 academic journals, dating back to the first volume ever published, along with thousands of monographs and other materials relevant for education. JSTOR has digitized more than 50 million pages and continues to digitize approximately 3 million pages annually.Available collections include:
Fees for JSTOR collections have remained unchanged since 1997. Fees for access vary based on the type of institution.
For each collection subscribed, there is a one time Archival Fee, and an additional (much smaller) Access Fee (to be paid annually).
When more than one collection is subscribed, the price structure is modified in such a way as to ensure that the participating institution never pays twice for the same title.
Current Scholarship Program
In addition to Archival Collections, JSTOR offers Current Scholarship Program - current subscription to various journals. Please send us requests for subscriptions and we will respond with a quote.
