AFS Partners with JSTOR to Offer JPASS Access Service to Members
Friday, November 15, 2013
collaboration with JSTOR, we are pleased to announce that AFS members can now subscribe to JPASS, a new JSTOR access plan for individuals, at a highly discounted rate.
for those without institutional access to the JSTOR archival
collections, JPASS is ideal for society members working outside of the
academy. It is also valuable for faculty members at institutions with
limited access to JSTOR, and for adjuncts with sporadic access to
library resources. Regardless of your institutional affiliation, JPASS
serves as your personal library card to the rich selection of journals
part of your membership in AFS, we are able to offer you the 1-year
JPASS access plan for $99—a 50% discount on the listed rate. JPASS
includes unlimited reading and 120 article downloads—not only to the Journal of American Folklore, but to more than 1,500 humanities, social science, and science journals in the JSTOR archival collections.
To subscribe to JPASS at the discounted member rate, you must sign up via a link on the AFS website. To access the link, you must be an AFS member and be signed in to the site (the JPASS discount is not available to sections-only or web-only members). You can access the link by visiting "Other Member Services" under the "Member Services" tab in the main menu, or by clicking here. The JPASS
discount is only available through this link, which will expire and be replaced every three months.
JPASS has no impact for members who access the Journal of American Folklore on JSTOR through the Individual Access program. You may continue to access JAF
as you regularly do. We recommend that you purchase JPASS if you wish
to access more of the JSTOR archive. To browse the more than 1,500 journals available through JPASS, go to http://jpass.jstor.org/.
