Digital Archives

Since the launch of the Journal Storage Project (JSTOR) in 1995, APSA has played an active role to increase access to political science scholarship. Today, APSA members may choose to subscribe to JSTOR for the low rate of $25 per year and gain access to the full archive of APSA journals and to the archives of several other political science journals.

APSA subscribers to the individual access program may search or browse the archives of the following journals: American Political Science Review (from 1903), PS: Political Science & Politics (from 1968), Perspectives on Politics (from 2003), American Journal of Political Science (thanks to the cooperation of the Midwest Political Science Association), American Journal of International Law (thanks to the cooperation of the American Society for International Law), Political Science Quarterly (from 1886-2002, thanks to the cooperation of the Academy of Political Science), and the Midwest Journal of Political Science (from 1957-1972). At the beginning of each year, the whole volume of each of the 3 APSA journals from three years ago is added to the JSTOR archive. For example, in 2018, the 2014 volume of Perspectives on Politics moved to the archive.
