New AAS Member Benefit: Discounted JPASS Access

The AAS, in collaboration with JSTOR, is ​pleased to offer a 50% discount to JPASS for AAS members. At this time of remote work, support in the form of online access to publications is invaluable. ​The JPASS was specifically designed for independent researchers and provides unlimited reading access to the 2,000+ humanities, social science, and science journals in the JSTOR archive. Those who subscribe can download up to 120 articles a year.

The discounted price of an annual JPASS plan for AAS members is $99. To take advantage of this 50% discount, please sign up at the JSTOR website.​   

A monthly plan for $19.50 is also available for anyone who would like a shorter plan.

Note that JSTOR has also made accommodations during the COVID-19 outbreak:        

  • Free read-online access: JSTOR increased the number of articles available online for free from 6 to 100 article per month. A free JSTOR account is required, but everyone can have read-only access to the JSTOR archive. The 100 article/month limit is in effect until June 30, 2020.        
  • Open and free content on JSTOR and Artstor: A roundup of open and freely available content—journals, books, and images—across the JSTOR and Artstor platforms. This content will continue to be open on JSTOR.        
  • Public Health journals: Expedited release of 26 public health journals in light of the pandemic. These journals are open to everyone through June 30, 2020.
