    Hi John! That's completely fair. We'll follow up with you via email to make sure we've taken all the steps you're requesting to withdraw your account with JSTOR.

    I would like to read the 30 page article before I make a commitment to purchase it. But I can't understand the steps needed to access the article. I am not a student only doing private research.

    Hi Jon! It looks like you already have a free account with JSTOR, which is great! That's the first step to being able to see content for free. Go ahead and sign in to your MyJSTOR account: https://www.jstor.org/action/showLogin

    The next step is finding the article you want to read. If is has a "read online" button next to the title, click that, and you'll be able to read the article online. To turn the page, click the right arrow button that appears to the right of the article text.

    Note that not ALL articles on JSTOR participate in the free program. If you're not sure whether the article you want to read participates, check with us by emailing support@jstor.org.

    Hope this helps!

    It seems that they changed, again, the format of the page. This is annoying, since now I can not consult online, an article of the Mexicon Magazine, because I do not find the option to "read online" ... What do I have to do to consult it?... Until my last consultation with Mexicon, a month ago, I had no problem consulting your articles.
    Why are we doing this to independent researchers?

    Hello, there is no "Read Online" option for any articles that I click on?

    What should I do? As this is extremely frustrating and I am unable to comprehend this new format at all!

    26 times 14 equals 364, so 3 times 26 equals 78 articles per year under the previous arrangement.  6 articles per month comes out to 72 articles per year under the current arrangement.  How does that square with the assertion that "you can read more articles, more easily" now?

    Mark,

    You are correct that you have a few less total articles available in an entire year. “Read more articles, more easily” was meant to be in reference to the fact that more articles could be read at any given time per month. For example, previously, if you signed up for a MyJSTOR account, you would only be able to read 3 articles before reaching the article limit. Now, you can read 6 articles immediately before hitting that limit. I apologize for any confusion this caused, we have rewritten the text there to make that more clear.

    THis is my personal feedback 

    When i first discovered j stor some years ago  i found the search and reading of cases simple stupid and convenient immediate access to the case law for review, it then progressed to providing 4/5 cases of similar facts.

    however now I find that the use of J stor for reference has  become a design program for some boffin who created and/or changed what was an excellent simple medium with immediate results.

    It may satisfy students who wish to be engrossed in a complicated system that does not provide the results quickly which were readily available prior to the overhaul of a very satisfactory system.

    I will not and possibly many others will stop the continued use of this new program.

    Also, if you have other thoughts about this feature, could you email us at support@jstor.org and let us know what thoughts you have about how we can make it better?
