JSTOR icon.png This user has access to JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library



Account Coordinators: The Interior and Juno will be approving accounts and collecting email addresses.

JSTOR is one of the largest and most reputable journal archives in the world. This page is to facilitate signups for a pilot collaboration between the Wikimedia Foundation and JSTOR. This pilot provides free access to JSTOR's complete archive to 100 500 active editors for one year, in order to better support the most active and experienced authors of the encyclopedia. Active through December 2015. See blog post.

The content set currently available to the Wikipedia editors includes all of JSTOR's archival journal collections (now about ~2,000 journals) and the 19th Century British Pamphlets collection (26,000 pamphlets), but the books (~20,000) and the current journals (more recent issues for ~300 titles) are not available in the Wikipedia pilot. TWL is working with JSTOR to potentially expand the package available to editors.

Note that around a hundred universities provide free alumni access – please check if this applies to you!

To get access[edit]

  1. You will need to be an active editor. If you haven't been particularly active lately, preference may be given to another request.
  2. You will need to have a confirmed email address, and be willing to provide this address to someone from the Foundation and to JSTOR (unlike Wikipedia, JSTOR access requires email). The Interior is the current contact.
  3. You will need to sign up here, with access given out in the order of signups. Please sign up even if the 500 person limit has been reached, so that overall interest can be measured and we can get a waitlist started. Before you post a request, please check on this page to see whether you already have access through your local public library and/or educational institution.

Please be aware[edit]

  • If you are given access but fail to register an account within a reasonable time, you may be asked to relinquish it to another requester.
  • There is no minimum usage requirement, but if you're not really using your account and you're willing to give it to another person on the list, please let the Foundation contact know.
  • You will need to abide by the JSTOR Terms of Service, and should be comfortable with the fine print in the JSTOR Privacy Policy.

Requirements[edit]

  • You do not have free online access to these JSTOR products through your local library or university
  • You have your preferences enabled to receive email messages on English Wikipedia or on your home wiki linked from your application; (see Special:Preferences)
  • You have an account that is a minimum of 1 year old
  • You have a minimum of 1000 edits to the encyclopedia
  • You are active in content generation, research, and/or verification work

If you don't quite meet the experience requirements but think you would still be a strong candidate for access, feel free to apply and you may be considered.

  1. Rupert1904 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Active user since 2009. I was a History major in college, where I had much access to JSTOR on a wide range of topics from the European Renaissance to the Spanish Golden Age and Empire to the antebllum South.

  2. Aklein62 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Active user since this summer (2014), independent musicologist without institutional access to JSTOR. Am specialising in Irish musical history and would use musicological sources on JSTOR.Aklein62 (talk) 18:59, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
    Aklein62, we are limiting accounts to those who have over one year experience. Please re-apply when you've hit that mark. The Interior (Talk) 16:34, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
  3. AnthroMimus (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am intending to make substantial revisions to the Umayyad and Abbasid caliphate articles, which sorely need them. In past I have substantially expanded articles in sports, American political biography, and paleontology.AnthroMimus (talk) 02:08, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
    AnthroMimus, I'm only seeing 441 edits - we've placed the limit at 1000. Please re-apply when you've mad it there. Best, The Interior (Talk) 16:34, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
  4. kobuu (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) My biggest contribution is WP:Cleanup. My focus is improving articles in a variety of subjects. Nothing specific, but JSTOR would provide a go to source for enhancing articles. MCLA doesn't offer alumni access so this would be great! Thanks! Kobuu (talk) 20:42, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
    Kobuu, I'm only seeing about 600 edits to the project. We have set an 1000 edit benchmark for accounts. Please re-apply when you meet that number, best. The Interior (Talk) 19:04, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
  5. Salman mahdi (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I actively work on Islamic articles for at least five months, access to JSTOR will help me to improve the articles fastly.--Salman mahdi (talk) 19:48, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

    Gouncbeatduke, accounts are limited to editors with both 1000 edits and a year's experience. Please re-apply when you've reached that point. Best, The Interior (Talk) 22:00, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
  7. Aspro (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Active since 2006. I have a broad range of interests, so get frustrated at the number of times a google scholar search leads me to JSTOR and I can't read the whole paper to see if it makes a suitable WP reference. Too many editors rely on just the text available in the Abstract or first page - which is bad practice. Approved
    Aspro, we need email enabled to send you a login. You can do so through your preferences. The Interior (Talk) 09:00, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  8. Sameichel (talk) 13:02, 8 February 2015 (UTC) I am one of the founders of the newly recognised Wikimedia Community Ireland. It would be ideal if we could have access to JSTOR to use at our edit-a-thons and other events. Access would make our events that much more productive. Thanks. Sameichel (talk) 13:02, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Pending There have been a few questions about coordinated accounts between more than one Wikipedia user. We have contacted JSTOR about this and will let you know when we receive a reply. Juno (talk) 22:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  9. OR drohowa (talk) 20:30, 9 February 2015 (UTC) Hi! I already signed up for JSTOR access, and had it for a while, but now when I login to JSTOR, I have 'limited access' and am only able to see abstracts/ article listings but not full text! Is there an expiration period on our accounts and/or what is the renewal process? Thanks!
    Hi OR drohowa, do you recall about when it was that you signed up for JSTOR? Juno (talk) 08:50, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
    Juno - we worked this out, see the talk page. The Interior (Talk) 22:02, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
  10. Sminthopsis84 (talk · contribs)), I generally edit plant articles by using abstracts that are freely available online, jstor's three articles at a time, or paper copies from the university whose library is available to residents of the city. This is getting to take a lot of time, and I could resolve more complex puzzles in botany if I had online access to the whole articles without having to drop one of the three in order to look at another. I just gave up in frustration on a problem that should have been solvable, and decided to request access here in the hope of some day getting back to that one. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 20:23, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Symbol declined.svg Not approved Hi Sminthopsis84, I noticed that you recently put the Retired banner across your User Page and left a message to that effect on your Talk Page as well. I'm afraid that we can only issue accounts to members who are actively engaged in article creation. I was very sorry to see you go, please do reapply if you come back, you did great work in article creation and your case here would be very strong. Juno (talk) 09:27, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

  12. Arr4 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) - I usually edit in the articles of history, literature, politics and biography in English and Bengali wiki. It would be very helpful for me If I get access to the journal. My university does not give access to the alumni and none of the public library located near my house do not have access to JSTOR. - Arr4 (talk) 15:22, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

I focus on mythology & folklore of various cultures, and engage in a lot of fact-checking. I have subsisted on public domain resources and snippets, but would be helped by search and article access on JSTOR beyond "3 article" limit.--Kiyoweap (talk) 07:34, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Write about precisely the sorts of articles that JSTOR has the best coverage of, science and tech that I otherwise can't get. No longer in university, about 50 km from nearest reference library. Maury Markowitz (talk) 15:44, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
  15. Jefferyseow (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I specialise in 19th Century British Malaya. Sources are hard to come by. Access to JSTOR would make work easier. I've been on Wikipedia since 15th April 2006. On Wikipedia I have made over 1,962 edits, written 87 entries, significantly contributed to 12. I've created 10 pages on Wikisource and uploaded at least two files to Commons.
  16. Maestro Ivanković (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am an active Wikipedian since January 2012, mostly on Croatian Wikipedia where I mainly write about music and musicians (please, see my user page and edit counter if you want to know a little more about me). I don't have any institutional access to the JSTOR, so this possibility could certainly be very helpful to me regarding my future work on Wikipedia (globally). Thanks!

  17. 黑暗魔君 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Active on Chinese Wikipedia. I recently focus on editing Islam-related articles. Access to JSTOR would be useful for me to improve those articles.--黑暗魔君 (talk) 01:19, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  18. Satdeep Gill (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email)-- My application was approved earlier but i never got the password. I am sysop on pa.wiki and have been working for more than 5 years now. --Satdeep Gill (talkcontribs 04:34, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  19. Rsteen (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Active on Danish Wikipedia since 2007. Currently doing a project on 5th century history. This work would benefit greatly from access to contemporary articles that could be retrieved via JSTOR. --Rsteen (talk) 06:50, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  20. Dmartyn80 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Working in Russian wiki after 2008, I have 24 FA, 25 GA etc. Mainly editing articles on ancient culture, China and Pre-Columbian Mexico, art of XIX cent. at all. --Dmartyn80 (talk) 11:46, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  21. Mr. Pseudo (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I'm mostly active in the sq.wiki (Albanian), with 3500+ edits. Furthermore, lately, I became an admin on sq.wiki. I have broad areas of interest. (In real life) I have in depth knowledge in the biomedical field (I prefer not to be too specific), despite not doing a lot of edits in this field in the wiki projects. I have translated different articles on the subject of politics, economy, and philosophy from the en.wiki... I'm also doing a sort of clean up process on the sq.wiki...- there is a lack of sources, especially on articles about Albanian history (or better to say, how the world has seen and sees Albania, and Albanian related matters.). Moreover I think that this would be a further reason to continue working on wiki projects. --Mr.Pseudo Don't talk to me 21:45, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  22. GregJackP (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I work primarily on law articles, especially dealing with American Indians. I have 3 FAs, 1 class A, and 15 GAs. I have a Four Award and am one of only 5 Wikipedians with a Valiant Return Triple Crown. I primarily do content, but have just lost my student access to JSTOR. GregJackP Boomer! 02:13, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

  24. Jonathan Groß (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I'm mostly active on dewiki and dewikisource. Having access to JSTOR's contents would be a great help. Jonathan Groß (talk) 09:25, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
  25. JackTheVicar (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) it would be good to have more resources to add to literary, arts, theology and history articles I have been planning to edit (and which are delayed because the research doesn't come by easy).--JackTheVicar (talk) 16:24, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
  26. Peaceworld111 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I have access to JSTOR through my University but I am still unable to access much of the material. As I am and will be writing a number of articles, a better access would be helpful.--Peaceworld 16:53, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
  27. nableezy (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). Not as active as late but getting back into it, be useful for a number of topics I'm interested in editing in. nableezy - 20:46, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
  28. object404 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Wikipedian since 2008, currently active. My current area of interest is Filipino martial arts, culture & history, now branching into Spanish, Latin American and historical European martial arts & colonies in tracing routes. I'm currently looking into accessing primary and secondary sources (Spanish, Mexican & American (Philippine-American War to World War II) colonial period records, journals, newspapers & publications (as well as Mexican ones) 1600s-1940s), but physical access to these are difficult from the Philippines. -Object404 (talk) 15:52, 11 May 2015 (UTC) Edit: No JSTOR alumni access at my university. -Object404 (talk) 23:10, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
  29. Emilyvsthegorn (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I mostly edit biographical articles for women in history and the arts, and I'm also interested in serial killers. A lot of this information isn't available online outside of Google books, so I'd love access to JSTOR. I was very familiar with it when I was in college, so I believe I'd benefit from access. Thanks! EmilyvstheGorn (talk) 13:16, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
  30. Ormr2014 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I contribute to Wikipedia in a number of categories, including religious, historical, and geographical. I also actively peruse the list of requested articles for creation and create those I can find sources for. This information would allow me to contribute to Wikipedia much more effectively. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ormr2014 (talkcontribs)
  31. Jpbrenna (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I contribute to Wikipedia in a number of categories, especially in the history of Argos and the Argolid and recently, Greek and Roman women writers. I have started a stub article on Melinno, and I have cited the publicly available portion of a JSTOR article on her work, but I would like access to the full article for further citation. Additionally, I have noticed that many other articles on Greek and Roman writers, men and women, rely to much on shallow popular histories and could benefit from the citation of scholarly sources. This is especially important in cases of disputed authorship, where in order to avoid No original research, we need to present scholarly arguments for and against a particular attribution. I have graduated from university and no longer have free access to JSTOR.--Jpbrenna (talk) 23:03, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
  32. GeneralizationsAreBad (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I contribute to Wikipedia's military history articles, and I would love to have access to JSTOR, which is a great resource. It would provide me with a vast array of sources with which I could add content to articles; it would really enable me to expand the scale of my content. The ability to add scholarly content is so important on Wikipedia, and is especially helpful in contentious areas that need impartial analysis. As other editors have noted, it's very frustrating not to be able to view JSTOR articles in full. Thanks for your consideration. GeneralizationsAreBad
  33. Abecedare (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have been using Jstor and Project Muse for my wikipedia edits to (esp.) India and Hinduism related articles for years. But my access to these resources will be spotty at best in the upcoming months. So am requesting access through wikipedia. Thanks. Abecedare (talk) 20:23, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
  34. Valenciano (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have created over 400 articles on various Wikipedias, mainly the English one. I contribute to articles on politics and other topics such as Spanish and Basque history and this would be useful for sourcing these adequately. Valenciano (talk) 21:31, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
  35. Hatake (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I've been and editor and reviewer for about five years in sq.wiki with [+5000 edits], focusing for the most in the biographies of forgotten and prominent figures of the Albanian studies. I think that these resources can be a furthermore help to our objectives of polishing and enriching in the proper way these fields.--S. Saiti (talk) 19:10, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
  36. West Virginian (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I've been an editor and reviewer on English Wikipedia for almost ten years, and continue to author new articles on historic places, significant events, and biographies. I rely upon JSTOR extensively, especially its periodicals, but my account has expired. I tend to write about subjects relating to West Virginia and Appalachia, regions underrepresented here on Wikipedia. -- West Virginian (talk) 19:47, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
  37. KrakatoaKatie (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) No access to JSTOR through local library; usually write on Oklahoma-related topics, including naval vessels named for state and cities, and access would be hugely helpful. KrakatoaKatie 01:23, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
  38. Sp33dyphil (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Have made 39,000 edits since 2010. Mainly involved in content creation; access to JSTOR would be very useful. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 02:25, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
  39. Plange (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Used to be heavily active back in '06 and am back again. My major concentration, and what I'd like to use JSTOR for is to improve the articles on romance and romance writers plange (talk) 01:24, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  40. LaMona (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) No access to JSTOR locally. I generally edit pages for authors and academics, and hang out at AfD and AfC. I'm also trying to improve some articles (esp. in the library sciences) for which JSTOR access would be helpful since I work on historical topics and G-Scholar doesn't cover older material in the field. Thanks. LaMona (talk) 15:12, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  41. Yoninah (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have not been using my JSTOR account as much as I thought I would, and would like to give it over to another user. Yoninah (talk) 21:37, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
  42. Megalibrarygirl (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Hi! I'm active in contributing to articles relating to women and Chicana/o artists and a few other areas (like plant species). I've created several new articles in the past year. I have access to EBSCO (through my library) and project MUSE currently, but I'd love to use JSTOR too, if there's an opening. Thank you! Megalibrarygirl (talk) 00:42, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  43. SpacemanSpiff (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email)I was inactive for a while and therefore did not request access earlier, I'm back to being active. I'm primarily interested in access to articles relating to Indian history and Indo-Anglian literature, two areas where I find most sources behind Jstor walls. Thank you. —SpacemanSpiff 05:57, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

  45. Biblioworm (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I plan to use JSTOR access to do research for articles concerning Medieval Europe (England, in particular) that I intend to work on. I have already seen several articles on JSTOR that could be useful for content creation/improvement, so I feel that having direct access would be much more convenient than continually requesting individual access to the article. I have made 7.5k edits, and am the author of two GAs and eight DYKs. Although I'm not fully active at the moment, I should return to normal activity levels in the near future, and I could still use my access to start obtaining materials for articles that I wish to improve. I carefully looked through all the available TWL resources, and I determined that the three for which I have applied (JSTOR, Questia, and OUP) will be the most useful. Thanks, --Biblioworm 02:01, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  49. Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I'm an active editor, since 2007, with dozens of FAs, GAs, and new articles to my credit. A JSTOR account would be very helpful to me with the literature articles I focus on. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 16:36, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  50. Mxn (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I've been active here and at various other Wikimedia wikis since 2003. JSTOR access would be useful fleshing out existing articles such as pho and for verifying citations in articles like Philip J. Pauly. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 07:24, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
  51. Sadads (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) - Just lost University access to JSTOR, one of the primary tools I use for writing about novels. Hope to start #100wikidays soon, and would like to have this at my fingertips. Sadads (talk) 12:08, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Applications with pending comments/Declined applications[edit]

# This section is for applications that need clarification, or declined applications. Please add new applications to section above. Approved applications can be found at Wikipedia:JSTOR/Approved.

  1. For featured articles. I have no access to JSTOR, and have missed it sorely in the past. --Noleander (talk) 17:59, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
    Noleander, are you still actively editing? The Interior (Talk) 18:00, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  2. I do not have access to the JSTOR site. But a fellow editor (will disclose name to contacts if requested) was gracious enoughr to mail me the PDFs I requested, which he told me he acquired through a professor he knew. I Googled jstor domain to find links which I appear to be useful from the abstract or name and mail it to him. The process took about 3 weeks due to non-availability of his friend professor. I contribute to FAs, GAs and DYKs generally related to Hinduism and India. --Redtigerxyz Talk 18:06, 4 April 2012 (UTC) Update: No access. This Wikipedia editor is inactive.--Redtigerxyz Talk 05:50, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
    Redtigerxyz, your activity has picked up since your April 2012 note - do you still want access? The Interior (Talk) 18:00, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  3. Editor since 2008, 10k edits, 7 GAs. I've got my eye on a few series of articles, primarily food and drink, which I've already started working on and hope to progress this year. I do currently have limited JSTOR access through my girlfriend, though that runs out at the end of the month, after which I will have no access. Whilst I would find this very useful, depending on the limitations, please put me lower down the list, as some of the above (and I expect below) are exceptionally good editors who should get it before me. WormTT · (talk) 08:11, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
    Worm, you meet the requirements, but I should check whether you still want access per your note. Currently, there looks to be slightly more applicants than accounts. The Interior (Talk) 18:15, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
    I've not used it for a few months - please do feel free to remove my access, so that someone more likely to use it can do so. I can always apply again in future. WormTT(talk) 07:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    Okay, WTT, thatnks for letting me know. I'll skip you in this round, but feel free to re-apply at any point. The Interior (Talk) 15:08, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
  4. Active in content creation and improvement for 5+ years now. No current access to JSTOR which routinely obstructs my searches for references. Warden (talk) 10:50, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

  5. JSTOR might be the best access that could be provided for those who are looking to reference high quality articles. Four years, 18,000 edits, 3 GAs, 280 article created — all with high quality references (many from JSTOR, requested from other editors, since I have no access). Articles I've created include two on academic journals that are part of a JSTOR subscription: Willdenowia and Kew Bulletin :-). First Light (talk) 15:26, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

  8. I do not have access to JSTOR. I work a lot on Victorian biographies, and have ODNB access: it would be helpful to supplement that with JSTOR access to follow up some of the citations in ODNB. Cusop Dingle (talk) 21:22, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

  9. - I'm an autoreviewer on the English Wikipedia and I have written several articles relating to Military history and this is a topic that JSTOR could help me a lot with.

  10. I do not have access to JSTOR, but from the bit and pieces I have seen I believe will help greatly improve Wikipedia. For filling out articles and finding references for de-Orphaning, I've found getting refs quite often helps to fill out orphans and to find how they should be wiki linked to other articles.

    JSTOR will improve the reliability of Wikipedia, and will provide ASTOR with free advertisement. User:Prosa100 User inactive. [1] Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 19:59, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
  11. My JSTOR access is linked to my university for employment-related tasks, not for Wikipedia, and the diversion of public resources for private pursuits is anathema in Sweden. Furthermore, many journals covering American politics/culture and music, on which I have written c. a dozen articles in the last year, are not included in Swedish-university subscriptions to JSTOR. I don't use automated tools but still am among the top 300 editors on edit-counts in the last 2-3 years, the last time I looked. (I prefer short edits.) I have been the main contributor to one A-class article (mathematics and economics), a couple Good class articles (a US social-democrat who played an important role in two revolutions against authoritarian regimes and DGM), lots of B & C articles, 20 DYKS, etc. I've cleaned up a lot of articles dealing with US politics, Robert Fripp, Ovation guitars, etc. The last months, I've been improving the guitar tunings article, which is seen by more than 1.6 thousand persons daily; I've rewritten and finally referenced all the articles on regular tunings, generating two DYKS; the next step is to clean-up open tunings, for which JSTOR's articles on American culture and music would be helpful. My receiving access to HighBeam led to immediate extensive improvements in DGM and other articles. Thus, I may be considered worthy to pour Sandy's tea or shine PoD's shoes: After the best writers receive JSTOR, I would like to be considered for a B-team subscription.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz 21:50, 13 April 2012 (UTC) 15:54, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

  12. I like JSTOR's preview of page one of most articles but every fact I need to check is on page two. So access would be handy, but I'm also looking forward to the arrival of the arbiters of "need and merit" - that should be excellent fun. Yomanganitalk 15:56, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

  15. As a member of the Guild of Copy Editors, I frequently end up working on a very wide variety of articles, which quite often includes a lot of citation fixing, and confirmation, this would be an invaluable resource for many of the obscure articles I often find myself involved in. -- Despayre  tête-à-tête 17:42, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

  16. I wrote lots of GAs and FAs while I had access to JSTOR. Now that I don't, I try to soldier on, but the editing process is a lot harder. This would be highly appreciated! Lampman (talk) 05:32, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

  17. I edit a wide range of pharmacology and medicine related articles but I am often stuck to having to rely on brief abstracts for adding content. Access to JSTOR would make my life a whole lot easier editing here on Wikipedia. I would be most appreciative to be given access to this resource. :-)--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 11:27, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

  21. I focus on GA quality articles and access to JSTOR is very crucial in creating such article. Currently I get access through friends but it would be very convenient for me to have access directly so that I can do my own research without troubling my friends. Kanatonian (talk) 21:22, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

  22. A library account in my area does not include JSTOR access. I used already some older documents from JSTOR (free access) which are great resources as references, or to verify claims from others. I would improve my content work on WP if JSTOR access was available. Thanks, SchreyP (messages) 21:00, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

  24. I edit primarily in Greek and Roman history and literature and find that our coverage of these topics is often horribly hindered by our reliance upon public domain sources which don't present the great advances of the past 100 years. A JSTOR subscription would greatly facilitate my efforts here, and I have, even in cases where I've accessed articles in hard copy, always been sure to include a stable JSTOR link in my citation templates.  davidiad.: 02:32, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  25. JSTOR would be enormously useful for some of the older film articles that I have started working on, since it provides excellent analysis and lots of information that really improves the comprehensiveness of the article. I am not yet in any institution, and the one I am planning to join does not have access to JSTOR, so this would be really helpful to me. ~*~AnkitBhatt~*~ 10:53, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  27. Absolutely - I have great difficulty finding sources at the moment for the topics I am most interested in. This would literally increase my editing rate by one and a half orders of magnitude. Egg Centric 11:20, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  28. I currently have no access to JSTOR, have not edited much recently, and, if given access, will use it for fact-checking and point-making in content disputes. In truth, I will probably read it mostly for recreation and the advance of my own knowledge, from time to time sharing pertinent ideas with Wikipedia. I edit in religion, theology, Biblical studies, and philosophy, and already have a lot of the Philosophy Documentation Center collection/Poiesis (on my own dime!, and it's not cheap), along with limited access to Project Muse (whenever I'm at the House of Studies and not on assignment, which should be again in about a year or two). I don't know if JSTOR contains more journals that are relevant to my disciplines of interest. Hey, I'm honest. St John Chrysostom Δόξατω Θεώ 16:52, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  29. If the number gets bumped up, I could really use JSTOR. After I got HighBeam access, JSTOR became one of the top bottlenecks for me in adding references to articles. DoriTalkContribs 00:09, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

  30. I edit articles related to astronomy and astrophysics, and in particular astrobiology/extraterrestrial intelligence/extrasolar planet articles, although I do edit in other areas of astronomy as well. I would like a JSTOR account because JSTOR publishes the Journal of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, which provides a wealth of information about these topics which I have at times wanted to access. Access to paid sources is all the more important for topics where the vast majority of literature is non-free, such as my article "Cultural impact of extraterrestrial contact." Such is the case in many areas of astrobiology and SETI research. I hope Wikipedia is willing to expand this program to other journals later on. I'm not the most prolific user (I've only made ten articles, including 1 GA and 1 DYK, and I only have ~2,200 edits and 6 months of experience on Wikipedia) but I think that access to JSTOR will help me to add and improve articles in fields which are underrepresented on Wikipedia.

  31. I find that, when editing Wikipedia, I am reading a JSTOR summary about three times a week, but this seldom carries the material needed for the reference. The most recent occasion was today, while seeking to sort out the {{clarify me}} requested in this edit; eventually I found and added the doi for the relevant JSTOR page, but I can't actually read it myself. My edit count is currently >45,000. My email address was authenticated in 2008. --Old Moonraker (talk) 16:03, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

  33. I've made over 42,000 edits in Wikipedia including 8 GAs. Most of my articles involve a great deal of academic research. But though I've made extensive searches in Wikipedia and tried to get hold of the best books on the subject, lack of access to JSTOR has been a severe drawback for me. There has been many a time when a Google search had led me to a JSTOR site containing the exact article that I might need only to find that I had permission only to view the first page. JSTOR is almost indispensable for me - almost desperate for access.-RaviMy Tea Kadai 17:53, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

I have access to and have used Credo through my local library but do not have access to the other subscription resources on offer vis Wikipedia and am applying for all of these. JSTOR is the one of which I'm most aware as I have often come up against paywalls managed by JSTOR. I have created 17 articles mainly on subjects related to classical music or opera. Seven of these, generally the most recent, have been to dyk, three are now at GA or FL level. My 12K edits also involve getting another article to GA on my own and co-operating on getting a second article I did not create to FA status and a third to GA.

  47. I would describe myself as "low-priority"-- some people are far more active than I am. But, yes, I would be a more effective Wikipedian if I had direct JSTOR access. --HectorMoffet (talk) 10:02, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

    Alexis, I'm only seeing two edits. Unfortunately that doesn't meet the minimum edit requirements for this access. The Interior (Talk) 14:28, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
  51. Since November 2011 I'm an active editor on it.wiki, where I've created approximately seventy articles focused on art, art history and classical studies. A JSTOR access would be useful. [naamar m] 09:55, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

    Katie, where are you? Come back so you can get JSTOR access! The Interior (Talk) 22:07, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
  59. I'd like JSTOR access. How do we know if you give us access? Chuck Baggett (talk) 18:27, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
    Hey Chuck. You are under the 1000 edit threshold. Re-apply as soon as you get there (or reasonably close). The Interior (Talk) 22:07, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
  60. I would like to be able to use JSTOR for my articles. I do not have access to it through my public library. I am an alumn/a of a university on the list, but I am not a member of the alumni association. Can I please sign up for it? SciGal (talk) 21:03, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
    I registered for JSTOR under their Register & Read beta program. SciGal (talk) 00:03, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

  61. Technical 13 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email). I'm fairly well known as a templateFu/JavaScript guy, but I also spend a fair amount of time reviewing AfC drafts and being able to save some of the drafts I come across that are short a reference here or there using this resource would be a great benefit to the project. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 03:53, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

  63. Sturunner (talk · contribs) Almost all of my recent edits are science related. Specifically, the issue of memory processing, retention, & recall of traumatic events is increasingly an issue in child-abuse policy & legal cases. It is impossible to do this area justice w/o JSTOR. I have an honors degree in psychology & in sociology & have managed a biophysics lab. Access would greatly increase the range & speed of my contributions.--Sturunner (talk) 02:19, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
    Sturunner, you're a bit shy of the 1000 edit mark, which is required. Please reapply when you reach that point. The Interior (Talk) 01:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  64. Gparkes (talk · contribs) I do not have access to JSTOR. At one point, while going to college, I had access to JSTOR. I would like to use it for research into historical subjects, which is what I primarily edit. I realize that I do not have the 1000 edits, however, after you review the quality of my edits and use of citations, I hope that you can understand why such a valuable resource would be useful. Greg (talk) 03:02, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
    Greg, I did take a look at your contributions, and they look good. But we made the 1000-edit rule, and have applied it for other editors in the past. It wouldn't be fair to start waiving it at this point. I believe there could be spare accounts when we are done this round, so perhaps we can have a discussion then about lowering the number, or making exemptions. The Interior (Talk) 01:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  65. FormerIP. I used to have JSTOR access and used it a lot on WP, mainly for science, history and politics articles. But I don't have it anymore. I have about 16,000 edits. Formerip (talk) 21:43, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
    I'd like to withdraw, since I have discovered that I am entitled to alumni access. Apologies for not checking previously - I had assumed that only US universities would offer this, until I saw that another user had it via a UK university. Formerip (talk) 13:32, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
    Thanks for the note, Formerip. The Interior (Talk) 01:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

  67. It would help in citing science and history articles of bio-artists and other topics. I usually access open-journals for citations and an access to JSTOR articles, needless to say would be very useful. Nicke.me (talk) 07:03, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
    I'm sorry, Nicke.me, but at 784 edits you are under the required 1000 edits. Please re-apply when your reach that point. The Interior (Talk) 12:37, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  68. I have no access to JSTOR and it's intensely frustrating. I've run into dead ends several times on editing projects because relevant on-line information has only been available through JSTOR. My use of JSTOR would be largely for historical and technical articles. I would be quite happy to abide by the terms of service.Sam Paris (talk) 11:08, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

  71. Yeti Hunter. I occasionally create new articles but more often find interesting articles with poor content to improve (often via AFD). My topic areas of interest include history, science and engineering, and geography. My most recent WP projects have been tracking down construction cost information for bridges, and improving information on Sydney Ferries. Previously had access via uni, but have graduated. JSTOR would enable me to track down more technical data which is difficult to find on the free web. Yeti Hunter (talk) 10:52, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
