News and special offers

In 2016 our fees for the JSTOR Archive Collections will once again remain unchanged. We hereby announce special offers valid through 15 December 2015.

As you may know, fees for JSTOR Archive Collections have remained unchanged since 1997. There have been no annual or “cost of living” increases even as additional content is added each year as the “moving wall” advances. So far in 2015, we’ve added more than 3.7 million pages of content to our collections, all at no additional charge to libraries. In 2016 our fees for the JSTOR Archive Collections will once again remain unchanged, helping us to support the broadest possible access to the scholarship on JSTOR.
