PRIMARY SOURCES
Libraries, museums, and other academic and cultural institutions create and host troves of digitized primary source content. Despite its availability, however, primary source content remains difficult to discover. Thus, while the value of primary sources grows as new communities of researchers, teachers, and students emerge, use remains relatively low.
 
JSTOR is dedicated to supporting research and providing access to new scholarship, and is therefore beginning to host primary source content on its platform. We are as committed as ever to building collections of scholarly journals. But by integrating their primary source content with the vast number of journals already on the JSTOR platform, partner libraries, museums, archives, and herbaria are able to drive discoverability and usage of their primary content, create opportunities to generate revenue, and increase visibility of their larger archival collections.
 
Our goals for widening the scope of the archive to incorporate primary source content are to:
 
support research and new scholarship
help the academic community save on system-wide costs by providing a platform to preserve and disseminate a broadening range of scholarly materials
offer relevant materials that will help place the scholarly journals that form the foundation of the archive in a broader context
 
Primary source collections currently available on JSTOR are multi-disciplinary and discipline-specific, and include select monographs, pamphlets, manuscripts, letters, oral histories, government documents, images, 3-D models, spatial data, type specimens, drawings, paintings, and more.
 
If you would like to submit your content for consideration, or make a content recommendation, please complete the Contribution Form.
