All fees for JSTOR and Artstor Digital Library may be subject to tiering pursuant to the classification tiers applicable to a specific product or service. All payments will be made in United States dollars, in an amount such that, after deduction for any taxes, assessments or charges levied, assessed or imposed that you, ITHAKA or any other party may be required to pay or withhold in connection with such amount, the remainder actually received by ITHAKA is the amount invoiced by ITHAKA. All payments will be made by credit card or check or by mutually acceptable form of wire transfer.
The following shall apply only if you have elected to license the applicable product or service:
Archive or Thematic Collections
: The fees for Archive Collections or Thematic Collections are comprised of: (1) an Archive Capital Fee (“ACF”, a one-time fee per Collection aimed at ensuring the long term preservation, upgrading, and enhancements of the scholarly materials in the JSTOR archive, for certain collections such one-time fee is a Network Participation Fee) and (2) an Annual Access Fee (“AAF”, a periodic payment covering Institutional Licensee’s access to the JSTOR Archive). The AAF is subject to reasonable annual increases upon renewal of the Agreement. Based on your institution’s level of JSTOR participation, your institution may also be eligible in JSTOR’s discretion to either: (1) pay out the ACF pro-rated over a period of years as specified in the applicable invoice or (2) pay a one-time fee per collection (a portion of which shall consist of the ACF) or (3) pay a one-time fee to gain access to all the content in a specified collection at the time of licensing with an annual new content fee to access content which will be added to that collection during the calendar year. You may select any payment option for which you may be eligible. You may also elect to add access for your institution’s alumni through a secure portal or via an authenticated web site by paying an additional 10% of the total AAF (or other percentage set by JSTOR to better reflect the usage by your alumni relative to your other Authorized Users or otherwise upon reasonable notice).
In recognition of the important archival function provided by JSTOR, should you terminate access to a JSTOR collection, your institution may resume access to that collection and all content subsequently added to that collection at any time through payment of only the AAF (and any outstanding prorated installments of ACF).
Books at JSTOR: You may purchase access to Books on JSTOR (1) on a title-by-title basis; (2) you may elect to participate in the Demand Driven Access program (“DDA”) wherein your Authorized Users will be able to use a selected Book prior to payment until use of that title reaches a threshold set by JSTOR (which it may amend from time to time) at which time a purchase of access to that title will be automatically triggered at the then-current price and the fees automatically deducted from a deposit account to be established through a separate agreement between your institution and JSTOR; or (3) you may elect to participate in the Evidence Based Acquisition program (“EBA”) by placing an appropriate amount of funds in escrow through a separate agreement between your institution and JSTOR in order to access backlist titles from publishers participating in EBA through June 30th of the following calendar year at which time you may allocate the funds to acquire ongoing access to selected Books based on usage information provided by JSTOR. Access to Books at JSTOR shall also be subject to an annual platform fee unless such fee is waived by JSTOR under conditions it may set and update from time to time. If you are located outside the United States and Canada, complete payment of fees for a selected title shall be required before your institution receives access to that title.
Participation in Portico shall be subject to an Annual Archive Support Payment (AAS) paid by Licensee to support the Portico archive. Licensee shall pay a separate AAS for each content type within the Archive, including but not limited to e-journals and e-books. The AAS shall be based on the Licensee’s total Library Materials Expenditure (LME) for the then most recently-completed fiscal year and the content type(s) supported within the Archive (see http://www.portico.org/digital-preservation/join-portico/for-libraries). Licensee shall receive an annual invoice payable within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice for applicable AAS and any late payments may be subject to a late fee of 1.5% per month. All payments under this Agreement shall be exclusive of taxes. The AAS may be subject to reasonable annual increases.
Participation in the Artstor Digital Library shall be subject to: (1) an Archive Capital Fee (“ACF”, a one-time fee aimed at ensuring the long term preservation, upgrading, and enhancements of the scholarly materials in the Artstor Digital Library and (2) an Annual Access Fee (“AAF”, a periodic payment covering Institutional Licensee’s access to the Artstor Digital Library). The ACF will be due 60 days from the date of invoice. Licensee will be invoiced for the AAF in approximately November of every calendar year (or approximately one to two months prior to its fiscal year end, in cases of fiscal year billing) during the initial and renewal terms of this Agreement. The AAF will be due 60 days from the date of invoice, and will be subject to a 10% annual interest charge if paid after this due date. The AAF for the first year will be prorated to reflect the number of months remaining in Licensee’s billing year following the Access Date. The AAF is subject to reasonable annual increases.
