JPASS includes the archives of all the journals listed in the JPASS Collection which represents approximately 83% of the journals on the JSTOR website. Content not in the JPASS Collection includes scholarly books, primary sources, the most recent issues of some journals, and, in some cases, journal archives. Some of this unavailable content may be found via Register & Read, for purchase as an individual article, or through an interlibrary loan from a JSTOR-participating library. If you wonder whether something is or isn't in the JPASS collection, you can check the list on the JPASS website.
1 MONTH: $19.50
1 YEAR: $199; $179 with a MyJSTOR account; $149 OR $99 with a partner society discount (email us to find out if your society offers a discount)
How to buy a JPASS:
Create a MyJSTOR account. If you create a MyJSTOR account BEFORE you purchase your JPASS, you'll get a discount on the yearly pass.
If you are NOT part of a society, click the "Shelf" section of the drop-down MyJSTOR menu. This option is in the upper left hand side of your screen.
When you get to your shelf, if you've put things on it, you'll see an ad that says "Your Shelf is Almost Full." From there you can choose your package via two buttons in the ad block: "$19.50/month" and "$179/year." Choose one and make your way to PayPal.
If you don't have anything on your shelf, no problem. You can click "JPASS Downloads" from the MySTOR menu on the left hand side of the screen. It will take you to a page with a "Learn More" button.
Once you choose a plan, you'll be presented with a check out screen. Be sure to check the box that allows you to accept our Terms and Conditions. Please note that you must manually select "Pay by the month" if you don't want your JPASS to automatically renew every month. After clicking "Check Out" you'll be taken to PayPal.
