- JSTOR expanded its Register & Read program with more than 1,200 journals this week after testing it out as a pilot program last year.
- More than 700 publishers will permit the online journal archive to allow Register & Read users, regardless of university affiliation or lack thereof, to freely see up to three articles every two weeks.
- Full access to JSTOR's materials will still be reserved for subscription-based library services.
From the article:
"... The Register & Read program was designed to make access to JSTOR’s treasure trove of journal articles at least a little more open. While access to JSTOR’s full content is reserved for those with ties to libraries that purchase subscriptions, the Register & Read program lets anyone, university-affiliated or not, read -- but not download or copy -- up to three articles every two weeks, for free. ..."
