JSTOR Discount is New NAIWE Benefit

NAIWE and JSTOR are pleased to announce a 25% discount on a 1-year JPASS for members

 JPASS: Your personal access plan to a digital library of more than 1,500 academic journals on JSTOR. Access the most influential research and ideas published in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences over centuries—anywhere, anytime.

What is JPASS?

JPASS is a time-based individual “library card” granting access to more than 1,500 journals from the JSTOR archive collection.

What content is in JPASS?

JPASS grants access to JSTOR’s journal archive collection content. Some exceptions apply. A complete title list is available on jpass.jstor.org, and new journals are added monthly.

What is the NAIWE Member Discount?

Members may purchase a JPASS annual access plan for $149 US, a savings of 25% of what others pay. Monthly access, at $19.50 per month, is also available.

How do I get the JPASS discount?

The administrator at your association distributes a custom URL to members and is tasked with securing this as they would a promotional code available to members only. The individual member then completes the transaction by credit card on the JPASS website by using the URL, which acts as a promotional code to expose the 25% discounted price.

Does the URL expire?

Yes, URLs will expire in 6 months. If this exclusive offer is viewed as valuable to the member base, JSTOR can renew the offer. Active members will be able to renew JPASS by getting the current URL from the association administration.

How does this URL work?

When a member clicks on the URL, a pre-programmed parameter adds the discounted price of $149 to the JPASS sales website information. In order to view the $149 price, this specific link must be used.
