We invite you to join Path to Open, a new collaboration between JSTOR, university presses, and libraries that addresses the challenges of funding open access (OA) books.

Participating libraries will acquire unlimited, exclusive access to new, high-quality frontlist Path to Open books every year. Three years after publication, the titles will then be released openly to the world. View current titles and preview what’s coming.

This model provides a pathway for equitable access and impact for the entire scholarly community:

  • Libraries acquire affordable, high-quality frontlist titles
  • University presses can publish open access books sustainably
  • Readers worldwide gain access to valuable content
  • Authors reach a global audience
