Off-site access to JSTOR

By Catherine Sharp, on 26 November 2010

UCL users trying to access JSTOR off-site via the ejournals or databases list may see a message that access has been suspended.  UCL Library Services is in contact with JSTOR support about this problem.  In the meantime, please use one of the following two options for access:

1. Click “login” at the top right of the JSTOR home page.  On the next screen, scroll down to “Access JSTOR through a participating institution”.  Choose United Kingdom and UCL (University College London), as in the screenshot below.  You’ll then be prompted for your UCL username and password, and should be able to log in and access full text.

2. Log in to the Web WTS service. Open up a browser in that service, and go to JSTOR as normal (via the ejournals list, databases list, or directly.)  You should find that you’re able to access full text.

    When I follow these instructions using my iPhhone or on my home PC access is refused with the message that it is due to my status. Well OK I am not the provost but isn’t full Professor hogh enough?
    I can log into all other library resources off site so login is not the problem.
    Thanks for advice

    Dear Professor Tuddenham,

    We are currently experiencing general problems with the login option on the JSTOR site. Please see a new post that I’ve just published on the blog – http://blogs.ucl.ac.uk/library-ejournal/2011/03/14/off-site-access-to-jstor-4/ – for alternative login methods.
