Designed for those without institutional access to the JSTOR archival collections, JPASS is ideal for those 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 on JSTOR.

As a benefit of NPA membership, we are able to offer you the one-year JPASS access plan for $99—a 50% discount on the listed rate. JPASS includes unlimited reading and 120 article downloads from more than 1,500 humanities, social science, and science journals in the JSTOR archival collections.
