How to get a JSTOR account

Some of the papers in the resources section are accessible via JSTOR, a digital library for research. When you click on them, it will seem like there is a paywall, but you can register for a certain number of free articles per month.

During Covid times, JSTOR is offering the general public free access to 100 articles a month. I am not sure what the non-Covid era number is. I have always had access to JSTOR through my school/work so its something I have ever noticed. Another way to get access would be to see if you can become a member of any library (public or academic) that has access.

But there is also a way to get a free, general account. First step, register at:

JSTOR: Registration
JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources.

As part of the sign up process, it will ask you what institution or university you represent, and to test this I just put in the name of a local university (even though I never attended it), and then for role, I just put “other”. Again, this process might get stricter later on, but for 2021 and early 2022, this was fine.

Once you are registered, you can click the article link again and it should bring you to the article directly.
