After Book Publishers sign an agreement with JSTOR, they will be provided with an FTP account at ftp.jstor.org. In order to access this space, download and install an FTP client, such as Cyberduck, FileZilla or WinSCP.
- Log into your space using the credentials provided by JSTOR. If have not received them, contact us for assistance.
- Inside this folder there are two subfolders labeled: “books” and “misc”.
- Publishers use this FTP to send metadata and assets to JSTOR by placing them in the “books” folder. This subfolder is active, so once a file has been fully uploaded to it, it will be moved to our system – so don’t be alarmed if files start disappearing!
- The “misc” folder is static, which means any file you place there will not be touched – and is generally only used for delivering and reviewing test files. JSTOR may ask for test files and metadata for review prior to your sending full production files.
- Upload all pertinent metadata, book PDFs and front covers to your JSTOR FTP account. The files should be “loose” and not in a zip file bundled together.
