JSTOR and the U. of California Press team up

The Wired Campus Blog of the Chronicle of Higher Education reports that JSTOR and the University of California Press have initiated a new effort in academic publishing called the Current Scholarship Program.
The initiative hopes to make current and historical scholarly content available on a single, integrated platform, to provide a single point of purchase and access for librarians and end users around the world, and to ensure its long-term preservation. Beginning in 2011, current and historical content from all University of California Press published journals, including those from scholarly societies, will be available on a redesigned JSTOR platform.
JSTOR is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping the scholarly community discover, use, and build upon a wide range of intellectual content in a trusted digital archive. It is highly respected for hosting scholarly content and known for the user-friendliness of its website.
