Addendum to JSTOR post

I should have read all the information from JSTOR more carefully. Did I mention that JSTOR has over 1600 journals online? Well, I should have looked at the crack in the door a little closer before hitting the publish button on my last post.  As it turns out, most of the journals, at least older issues, are currently available. So this is a major advancement in access. Thanks to JSTOR for the correction and the update.

  1. Hello, James - My name is Kristen Garlock and I'm the Associate Director for Education & Outreach at JSTOR. I'd like to clarify the numbers in your post. JSTOR includes about 1,600 academic journals (not 7,000). The initial phase of the "Register & Read" program ran from March 2012 - December 2012 and did include only 77 titles. However, just this past week we expanded the program to more than 1,200 journals. More info about the program and a list of the journals can be found at Could you point me to where you saw the 7,000 journal figure? I'd like to make sure that gets corrected, if necessary. Thanks!
