The HSS newsletter notes that the University of Chicago Press has joined other presses in JSTOR’s Current Scholarship Program, which promises to allow access to both yesterday’s and today’s scholarship all through one portal. I can certainly see the advantage to not having to search through a variety of databases for journal articles from past and present. That could save me a great deal of time and effort.
But I had hoped to find that this program would also include some talk of keeping costs down as well. I imagine many who read this blog hear frequently—as I do—from librarians about the cost of maintaining digital subscriptions. What will putting more under JSTOR’s umbrella mean in terms of price? Thoughts?
