Arts & Sciences XV Archive Collection

ASXV content was released in April 2016. Arts & Sciences XV will contain over 150 titles, with extensive coverage in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, including literature, film, art, music, religion, classical studies, history, education, economics, political science, and sociology. Some titles will be drawn from recent discipline-specific collections that were not a part of our earlier Arts & Sciences collections: 20 titles newly added to our Mathematics & Statistics collection, and 21 titles from our Jewish Studies collection. The collection will also contain a minimum of 110 new-to-JSTOR titles, selected to round out our core disciplines with particular focus on historically significant journals and those that have become seminal publications for their field. (2/6/16)

Arts & Sciences XIV Archive Collection

ASXIV content was released in March 2015. The Arts & Sciences XIV Collection brings together more than 125 journals devoted to the study of culture and communication, from civilization's earliest traces to the growth and governance of peoples. All titles are new to the JSTOR platform at the time of launch. Journals in the collection span 17 countries, 23 disciplines, and date back to 1839. They are drawn primarily from the fields of Archaeology, Language & Literature, Communications Studies, Asian Studies, and Political Science. (15/4/15)

“.... a new version of the JSTOR IPA which will serve as the agreement for all JSTOR offerings and participation (CSP, archive, alumni access, e-books) going forward. The transition allows [JSTOR] to receive and process orders without further license documentation (i.e. having Riders signed).”

Please send all collection agreements and riders to Dawn Tomassi.   Download the JSTOR Collections Rider for "Universities and Four-Year Colleges from all other Countries" and email.  (13/9/12, updated 8/3/14)

"Business IV is the only discipline-specific collection at this time that has the one-time payment option offered. I believe it may not have been included on the Rider just to maintain consistency in the document since the others don’t have that option. It’s fine to include the one-time payment amount in the margin and initial accordingly. We can then process." (JSTOR, 16/10/13) 

License processing:  JSTOR no longer requires paper original license documentation for processing.  If a CAUL or CONZUL institution requires a countersigned paper copy (or countersigned PDF), please make this request when submitting the PDF license/rider for processing.  (22/7/10)

To order JSTOR CSP:

New JSTOR participants will need to complete and submit the Subscription Order Form and the JSTOR Participation Agreement that includes Schedule A-2.
Current JSTOR Participants will need only to submit Schedule A-2. Participants that have already submitted Schedule A-2 do not need to submit this form again.  (13/9/12)

JSTOR AAF Fees for 2007 for current subscribers (14/9/06)

JSTOR 2007 international pricing for all collections (31/7/06) -  2006 was the last year for which the AAF for CAUL's ASI, II and III is funded by DEST.

....2007 participation fees for all of our collections currently available.   .. [modified] internal pricing guide ... so you have all fees for all collections - and the reduced fees for collections where there is content overlap.  You will see that there is a tab for each collection and its fees.  The 'U.S. Fees 0%' fees are noted simply as a guide for you so you can see the difference in price - as Australian and New Zealand participants receive 20% off.  To make things even more convenient, I've added in the 9% consortial savings on all ACFs.
     For collections that will still be in development come 2007 (Biological Sciences, Business II and the Arts & Sciences Complement), I've noted the pro-rated AAFs as well as the full Annual Access Fee once the collection is completed.
     Therefore, the attached guide is helpful for participants and potential participants that are interested in reviewing fee details for collections.
For renewals, simply the AAFs apply as noted, unless the participant still has credits that apply.

JSTOR 2006 international pricing for all collections (2/8/05) [Members only]

.... includes the reduced fees for collections where there is content overlap. For collections that will still be in development come 2006 (Biological Sciences, Arts & Sciences IV, and the Arts & Sciences Complement), I've noted the pro-rates at the bottom.  I noted the full AAFs in the spreadsheet because I think it is important for folks to have the full fees since that is what they'll be responsible for once the collection is complete (and that is the amount that need be noted on license/rider documentation) - pro-rated amounts will be noted on the invoices.  The additional 7.5% ACF savings is not noted, but would be reflected on the invoice.

JSTOR 2006 renewal pricing (2/8/05)

....  the Arts & Sciences I Collection, Arts & Sciences II Collection and Arts & Sciences III Collection noted as 'funded' for the CAUL universities, and then have noted '0's for the collections that won't be invoiced for 2006 due to credits (as outlined in following document).  The 2006 AAFs noted in the spreadsheet for the Arts & Sciences IV Collection, the Arts & Sciences Complement and the Biological Sciences ARE the pro-rated amounts (not the full AAFs) since these collections are not yet complete. These pro-rates are as follows:
Arts & Sciences IV Collection AAF: 80%
Arts & Sciences Complement AAF: 60%
Biological Sciences Collection AAF: 65%

Final quotation from JSTOR 2005-2007 (5/8/04)
