JSTOR will be taking part in the VALA 2022 library conference in Australia. John Lenahan, ITHAKA’s AVP of Published Content, will be presenting the paper “Publishing and global usage of open content on JSTOR and the understanding of data.” We encourage all VALA participants to attend this online session on June 14 at 12 noon AEST.

The paper looks at usage data for multiple content types that have been published on JSTOR and made available to users across the globe. It also discusses existing models to support the publishing of open content and how the understanding of data can support future publishing.

John Lenahan works with more than 2,000 ITHAKA-partnered publishers to make their content available on JSTOR. He also collaborates closely with libraries to develop growth strategies for  journals and books programs to ensure their research, teaching, and preservation needs are met.
