2011 Pricing for the Current Scholarship Program Now Available

2011 pricing for the titles in the Current Scholarship Program (CSP) is now available on the JSTOR website. The price list may be downloaded as an Excel file at http://www.jstor.org/templates/jsp/_jstor/templates/info/about/programs/csp/csp2011PriceList.xls or accessed via a pricing calculator at http://support.jstor.org/csp/PriceCalculator/

CSP is designed to allow mission-driven publishers to partner with JSTOR on a premium discoverability and delivery platform while still retaining control over their pricing and identity. Through CSP, libraries are able to order current issues subscriptions through JSTOR, which will be delivered on JSTOR’s platform.

Currently 174 titles from 19 publishers are available for the 2011 subscription year, via the following products:

  • Current Collections: Traditional journal subscriptions from multiple publishers bundled as collections that match JSTOR archive collections (e.g. A&S I Current). Pricing is set at the sum of all titles in the collection. (http://support.jstor.org/csp/collections/)
  • Current Collection – Full Run: A Current Collection, plus backfiles of each individual title within that Collection. The price for current content is set by the publishers, and the backfile pricing is set by JSTOR.
  • Single Title – Current: a traditional current journal subscription. Available in electronic, plus P+E or P-only for some titles. Pricing is set by the publisher. (http://support.jstor.org/csp/titles/)
  • Single Title – Full Run: The complete run of a single title (Volume 1, Issue 1 through the current issue). Pricing is the sum of the publisher-established price for 2011 volumes + JSTOR-established fee for backfile volumes.

A current subscription to titles or collections in CSP will include access to all “born digital” content for the title (content originally published in electronic form, outside of an aggregation). This date varies from publisher to publisher. Access is provided from that date forward through the current subscription year, with new issues added according to the publisher’s own publication schedule. JSTOR is now accepting orders for the 2011 subscription year for electronic and print + electronic subscriptions for the Current Scholarship Program.

Orders may be placed directly with JSTOR or via subscription agents and consortia, and CSP subscriptions can be added to existing JSTOR license agreements via a simple rider. Ordering information is available at http://www.jstor.org/page/info/about/programs/currentScholarship.jsp#ordering. Print-only subscriptions and renewals should continue to be placed directly with the publishers or subscription agents. Beginning January 2011, electronic access to journals participating in CSP will be made available from JSTOR’s platform. The platform will give scholars and educators an improved online work environment that combines new content with complete journal backfiles.

JSTOR will be launching a new interface this summer in preparation for the launch of CSP; additional details on this interface will be available in mid-July.
