JSTOR has expanded access for students, faculty, and institutions impacted by COVID-19. Access to all these resources will be available through June 30, 2020:
Expanded JSTOR resources for institutions
- Expanded access to journals and primary sources: For participating academic institutions that currently license some, but not all, JSTOR Archive and Primary Source collections, JSTOR will turn on access to all unlicensed collections at no cost.
- Expanded access to books: With support from dozens of publisher partners, more than 35,000 books are available at no charge for JSTOR participating academic institutions.The number of titles available through this effort is growing as more publishers opt in.
- Extended browser pairing on JSTOR and Artstor: If a user visited either site from their campus network within the last 30 days, their off-campus access from the same browser will be extended through June 30 instead of the normal 30 days.
Expanded JSTOR resources for everyone
- Expanded access to Public Health journals: JSTOR and its publisher partners have expedited the release of 26 new Public Health journals, available for free access.
- 6,000 free selected articles related to COVID-19: JSTOR editors collaborated with participating publishers to build a selection of 6,000 journal articles related to COVID-19 and make them freely available. The selection draws from disciplines across the humanities, sciences, and social sciences to cover the far reaching impact of pandemics, from the money we spend to the food we eat.
- Free read-online access expanded to 100 articles: To support independent researchers at a time when they are unable to get to physical libraries, JSTOR has expanded its free read-online access from 6 to 100 free articles per month. This access may also help students and faculty who have been displaced from their home institutions, though the option to log in through their institution will always be presented as the first choice. JSTOR is working to help users get access through their institution and have created suggestions to help with remote access.
- Tools for teaching remotely with JSTOR: As classrooms and libraries have gone online-only, JSTOR created a bootstrap resource to help faculty find content and organize it for distance teaching, and included a list of pointers they can share with students to help them do research, write, and study from home. There’s also a guide for librarians with content that can be repurposed within a local LibGuides site.
