JSTOR Offering (limited) Free Access to Journal Archive


JSTOR’s Register & Read program launched this week, in an effort to make JSTOR’s archive of scholarly material more open to researchers without (expensive) institutional or personal access. The program gives those who register the opportunity to access 3 articles every 2 weeks at no charge, from 1200 participating journals. Could this be the first step to a policy re-think by the Information Gatekeepers of scholarly publishing? To learn more, see the article from Inside Higher Ed. No longer an RDC student, faculty, or staff member? There are still many scholarly resources available online for you to use for your research. Check out RDC’s Open Access LibGuide for images, media, and scholarly material, available freely online.
