There is a great deal of Open Content available on JSTOR. Use JSTOR to access Open Access books and journals, as well as journal content published before 1923 in the United States (and prior to 1870 elsewhere) for free. The “Early Journal Content” on JSTOR includes more than 500,000 public domain articles from more than 200 journals on the JSTOR platform.
The easiest way to search open content is to go to the open content page and use the basic search.
Keep in mind that open access isn't the only way to get free content on JSTOR. Sometimes publishers will make their content available to read online for free with a personal JSTOR account. Here are some resources that will help you get access to content for free on JSTOR:
