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 

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
