JSTOR Path to Open

A new JSTOR initiative is a multi-year pilot program designed to increase access to diverse ideas and research. It offers sustainable open access solutions, supports the nonprofit university press community, and invests in authors and their scholarship, increasing the impact of their work.

Path to Open was developed in partnership with the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS)University of Michigan Press, and The University of North Carolina Press to bring about equitable access and impact for the entire scholarly community. This funding model will provide libraries with affordable access to diverse, high-quality frontlist titles; support small and medium university presses in open access publishing; help authors reach a global audience; and advance equity of access to underserved researchers around the world. This pilot aims to protect the bibliodiversity that these university presses bring to the world—new voices, fresh areas of scholarship, emerging fields, and an expertise in diverse disciplines.
