JSTOR Current Scholarship Program Reaches 100 Journals

We are very pleased to announce that seven new publishers have recently joined the Current Scholarship Program. While work continues to sign additional publishers and titles to the Program, with these new partners, libraries will be able to license and provide their users with access to the current issues of at least 100 journals on the JSTOR platform beginning in 2011.

The publishers that recently joined the Program include:

Association for the Study of African American Life and History

Michigan Historical Review, Central Michigan University

Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Massachusetts Historical Society

Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture

University of Nebraska Press

Western Historical Quarterly, Utah State University

These publishers bring a wealth of ground-breaking scholarship to the Program. Titles include The William & Mary Quarterly and The Journal of African American History, as well as other core publications in African American Studies, Feminist Studies, and History.

We are very excited to have these publishers working with us to improve access to current journal content. Librarians and users tell us consistently that adding current issues to JSTOR is important to them, and we know that more is better. Reaching 100 titles is a first step, and we continue to strive to grow the Program with partners who share our commitment to serving the needs of libraries, faculty, and students.

A final list of publishers and titles that will be available in the Current Scholarship Program for the 2011 subscription year will be coming soon, and pricing for the current issues of these journals will be available in early summer. In the meantime, as you begin your collection development planning for next year, a presentation from ALA Midwinter about the Program benefits for libraries and details about how your institution will be able to license titles in the Program is available online. You can also contact us directly.
