How does the archiving process impact JPASS?

Because the archive of a journal necessarily grows to include more issues over time, a new year’s worth of published content is added to most journals in the JPASS Collection each January.

How much can I read with JPASS?

You can read ALL the content in the JPASS Collection: full articles and book reviews, entire issues of journals, and decades of academic research.

How will I know when new content is added to the JPASS Collection?

We will send a regular communication notifying you of new additions to the JPASS Collection. To stay informed about the latest JPASS updates, we encourage you to confirm that you wish to receive JSTOR communications in your email preferences in the My Profile section of your MyJSTOR account.

Is content on JSTOR ever free to access?

Yes. Our Early Journal Content and Register & Read programs offer free read-only access to a limited set of content on JSTOR for individuals.
