UMP to make Open Access books available on JSTOR
In late October 2016 JSTOR will be launching an Open Access program, with titles from University of California Press, UCL Press, University of Michigan Press, and Cornell University Press. University of Michigan Press believes that integrating Open Access monographs with other types of content on JSTOR’s highly used platform, and making records available in library catalogs and discovery services, will increase the usage and impact of these resources. In addition, long-term preservation of the Open Access titles is assured by Portico. "The titles we will initially be including in JSTOR Open are those that libraries participating in the Knowledge Unlatched program have paid to make available," said Charles Watkinson, Director of the Press. "We are proud to be working with JSTOR on this pilot initiative and look forward to continuing to partner with them to improve the program."
