New Program: Open Access Monographs Begin to Rollout on JSTOR Platform


2016-10-26_17-07-46We are pleased to announce a new program to make Open Access monographs available on the JSTOR platform. An initial set of 63 titles is available from four outstanding publishers: University of California Press, University of Michigan Press, UCL Press, and Cornell University Press. We expect to add several hundred more Open Access titles over the next year.


Like all ebooks on JSTOR, the Open Access titles are DRM-free and have no limits on chapter PDF downloads or printing. Users will not need to register or log in to JSTOR to access the titles.

We provide chapter level discovery, as we do for all 45,000+ ebooks on JSTOR today. We have made free MARC records available, and are supplying metadata and full text for these titles to discovery services; more information for libraries is available here. In addition, all the Open Access ebooks are preserved in Portico, ensuring that they will be available to researchers in perpetuity.
