Journal Science to leave JSTOR

After nearly a ten year relationship with JSTOR, the Mellon-founded online journal archive, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has decided to end its association pulling the journal Science from the journal archive, effective 31 December 2007. This is the first time that a member publisher has left the over 900 title journal archive since its beginning in 1994.

In a statement, a Science spokesperson said that: “AAAS shares the belief that it is now time to assume full responsibility for maintaining a complete electronic archive of its flagship publication.”
