Please find below information concerning the 2022 revenue sharing calculation for participation in JSTOR's Archive Collections.
- Based on the simplified revenue sharing plan implemented in 2021, each publication receives a specified percentage of our total Annual Access Fee (AAF) revenue.
- JSTOR Annual Access Fee (AAF) revenue in 2022 across the Archive Collections saw just under a .05% increase from 2021.
- We had a very high renewal rate of 96% among our 12,877 institutional participants, and welcomed 696 new participants in 2022.
Looking ahead to 2023, we have just launched a new comprehensive collection model for libraries. This will enable the more than 5,000 libraries that have taken advantage of our expanded access program, launched at the onset of the pandemic and expiring this June, to continue this level of access with manageable fee increases. It is also available to libraries new to JSTOR or that did not take part in expanded access. We are excited by the initial response to this new option and expect it to provide revenue growth for JSTOR and our publishers, while offering broad access to scholarship.
Two final notes in closing:
- For those of you with publications in our Publisher Sales Service (PSS) program, we will mail those calculations and payments by the end of April 2023. We also have been assessing the impact of this program and will be in touch later this year with updates.
- As a reminder, you can submit contact changes, payment method updates, or reach out with questions at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
