The University of Chicago Press is now making all 115 years of the American Historical Review available to AHA members through an arrangement with JSTOR. Members who log in to the AHR will now be able to browse, search, and read the Review from 1895 to the present.
For the past seven years, the Association only provided full JSTOR access to members for an added fee. With this new arrangement, all members of the Association will enjoy this access as part of their regular dues.
In considering our new publishing collaboration with the University of Chicago Press we were aiming to provide more and better services to our members at less cost. Free access to members for the entire set of back issues of the Review is an excellent example of what we hoped to achieve.
“We think members will be exceptionally pleased with this added service, and are grateful to the University of Chicago Press for providing this added benefit,” observed the AHA’s Executive Director, Arnita Jones.
