I just saw this on my social network feed. The JSTOR Journal Hosting Program will be shutting down at the end of this year due to lack of finance. The Program itself ends 2021-12-31, so downloading will be possible throughout this coming year. But then, after that, the access to these publications through JSTOR JHP will be unavailable.
I know that not only myself but many others have used this wonderful program in the past for research purchases. And this is sad news that this resource will be no more. However, the JSTOR archive itself remains.
From the website:
The Journal Hosting Program (JHP) will end January 1, 2022. JSTOR will not publish new JHP content or provide fulfillment and hosting services to publishers after December 31, 2021, and JHP content will no longer be available starting March 1, 2022.
Through December 31, 2021, JSTOR will:
• Provide all subscription fulfillment and hosting services, and access to Journal Hosting Program journals
• Send 2021 renewals to institutions that subscribe directly with JSTOR
While JHP will cease after December 31, 2021, we will extend grace access to JHP content to subscribing institutions through the last day of February 2022. We provide grace access for an additional two months, even for journals that have transferred out of the program. This grace period allows institutions to update their catalogs and renew, and provides access to users during the transition. This also supports the journal Transfer Code of Practice, which encourages the transferring publisher platform to continue to provide access if the receiving publisher platform is not ready.
The end of JHP will have no impact on content in the JSTOR Archival Journal collectionsand Thematic Collections. All JHP content included in the Archival Journal and Thematic collections will remain in these collections. JHP content ahead of these collections’ moving wall will not be accessible on JSTOR; as the moving wall advances each year, a year of content will again become accessible in the archives.
