JSTOR offers flexible acquisition options to suit your collection strategy and budget. We can provide holdings comparisons and recommendations based on your institution’s usage data for journals and Open Access ebooks. Savings discounts are available and are calculated annually based on your institution’s JSTOR Archive Collection participation level, plus your annual books spend in the prior year. Since ebooks are integrated with journals and primary sources on our popular platform, libraries typically see high usage and a low-cost per use for ebooks on JSTOR.

Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA)

Evidence-Based Acquisition offers unlimited access to 75,000+ high-quality backlist scholarly ebooks from 100+ publishers in the 2024 program for a set upfront fee. After one year of unlimited access, you can select titles to acquire using the usage data as a guide. This model can help you meet the research needs of your patrons while controlling costs, simplifying workflows, and incorporating both usage data and librarian expertise in your acquisition strategy.

Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA)

Demand-Driven Acquisition offers access to a large set of titles for discovery and use, but your library only pays for those that reach a threshold of usage. This model allows libraries to align purchases more closely with patron needs, and ensures that you’ll never pay for titles that go unused. Libraries can manage their DDA workflows through GOBI Library Solutions from EBSCO, or through ProQuest, part of Clarivate (Rialto and OASIS) library suppliers.
