Completed: 2013 Revenue Sharing
JSTOR distributed nearly $13 million (approximately 25 percent of its Annual Access Fees) to the eligible 1,804 journals in the archival collections. To be eligible for 2013 revenue sharing payments, journals must have been publicly available on the JSTOR platform by August 1, 2013.
Designated payees at eligible publishers were sent their 2013 payments via check or wire. If you haven’t received your payment yet, please contact us immediately.
To ensure faster and more secure payments in the future, we encourage publishers to sign up for wire payments. Simply return a completed wire request form
. We’ll take care of the rest!Arts & Sciences XIII Expands Global Humanities Content
Launching this month, the Arts & Sciences XIII Collection will add 125 new journals from the humanities to JSTOR. Core disciplines in the collection include Religion, Language & Literature, Philosophy, and Art & Art History.
More than 60 percent of currently signed titles in the collection are published outside the United States. We have welcomed titles from 13 countries, including France, Hungary, and South Korea, with more on the way. Be sure to check the title list
as we continue to welcome additional titles to the collection. From S+R: 2013 US Library Survey
Ithaka S+R’s 2013 US Library Survey
reports on how leaders of academic libraries view their changing role serving researchers, instructors, and students. This survey updates and builds upon the findings in the 2010 library survey cycle. The Library Survey aims to track the strategic direction and leadership dynamic of academic libraries.
Publishers may be particularly interested in the Collection section (pages 38–49), which examines how libraries build and manage their collections, including allocating budget and addressing the varying opinions on print versus electronic formats for books and journals.Road Testing New Platform Improvements
Over the next few months, you may see some changes to JSTOR. We’re beginning to “road test” some improvements to the site under real conditions. This lets us collect a better range of feedback and data to understand how people currently use (and wish to use) features on JSTOR. These tests will often be limited to a small set of users, and people who encounter them are invited to provide feedback.
We’ve already done some testing to adjust the display of search results. We will soon start testing a revised article view page. For this scenario, we will start by showing the page only to users of our Early Journal Content whom we cannot identify by IP address.
We look forward to sharing more as our efforts progress. Please send any comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
