Designed for those without institutional access to the JSTOR archival collections, JPASS is ideal for members working outside the academy.

It is also valuable for faculty members at institutions with limited access to JSTOR, and for adjuncts with sporadic access to library resources.


  • Unlimited reading
  • 120 article downloads
  • Provides access not only to the American Historical Review but to more than 1, 500 humanities, social science, and science journals in the JSTOR archival collections.

Regardless of your institutional affiliation, JPASS serves as your personal library card to the rich selection of journals on JSTOR.
