By registering for a MyJSTOR account, you can read three articles every two weeks.
To register you will need to:
- create a username and password
- provide an email
- provide your name
There will be an opportunity to keep yourself logged in and to sign up for news items from JSTOR and/or JSTOR-participating publishers. To opt-in to any of those, you'll need to check the corresponding checkbox. You can start on the registration page.
Once you’re registered, go crazy! Find an article you want. (To do that you can limit your search to Register and Read content.)
Whether or not you’re logged in, you’ll see a series of buttons to the right of the citation information. If the article is part of Register and Read (our free program), you’ll see a “Read Online (Free)” button. Add content to your shelf to view it as full-text page images. After 14 days, you may remove it and add new items to your shelf.
PDF versions of some articles will also be available for purchase and download. If you purchase articles from your shelf, the PDF versions may be stored and accessed in your MyJSTOR account at any time.
How to change the details of your account:
Go to the My Profile portion of the MyJSTOR dropdown menu. The drop-down menu is found in the upper left hand corner of the screen. (It's the fourth option from the left.) Clicking on "My Profile" will take you to an editable form where you can change your name, email address, password, country, state, institution, academic status, etc. You will also be able to opt in to JSTOR mailings.
How to delete your account:
If you decide you don't want your account anymore and would like us to delete it, contact us and we'll take it from there.
