JSTOR | Current Scholarship Program: Release Dates and Webinars

Dear Colleagues -

As we gear up for the launch of the Current Scholarship Program 
(CSP) on January 1, 2011, we would like to provide some 
additional information on the CSP launch, and on transitioning 
access to titles moving to JSTOR as their primary platform.

Journal Release Dates:

We are pleased to announce that current issues of all 174 titles 
in the Current Scholarship Program will be available via the 
JSTOR platform on January 1, 2011. A full title list is available 

For libraries with full run subscriptions, please note that 
backfiles of four titles in CSP will be available beginning 
January 31, 2011:

- Afterall: A Journal of Art, Context and Enquiry (University of 
Chicago Press)
- Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific 
(University of Chicago Press)
- Studies in the Decorative Arts (previous title to West 86th) 
(University of Chicago Press)
- Transportation Journal (Pennsylvania State University Press)

URL Redirects

The CSP publishers with existing publishing platforms will 
implement URL redirects to JSTOR. JSTOR is also working with the 
vendors of link resolvers and other library products to ensure 
that their knowledge bases are updated with the appropriate JSTOR 
URLs. We recommend that libraries update any manually-created 
links. A list of existing journal URLs and new JSTOR URLs may be 
downloaded at 

Transition Resources and Webinars

We've compiled resources and information on the transition for 
libraries and library vendors at: 

We invite librarians and library vendors to join us for a series 
of webinars that will cover the transition, as well as on the 
platform update JSTOR is performing in December in support of 
CSP. There will be time for a Q&A at the end of each session.
