  1. 1. INTERNATIONAL COALITION OF LIBRARY CONSORTIA (ICOLC) Statement Concerning the Decision by the American Association for the Advancement of Science to Discontinue its Relationship with JSTOR October 30, 2007 With the endorsement of 75 consortia from around the world (see list page 2), this document reflects the ICOLC’s position concerning the recent decision by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to discontinue its participation in JSTOR. The ICOLC strongly objects to the recent decision by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to discontinue its participation in JSTOR, including withholding future issues of its premier publication, Science, from the JSTOR archive and prohibiting JSTOR from making issues of Science currently held in the archive available to new JSTOR participants. JSTOR has been a singular success in meeting the needs of students, scholars, librarians, and publishers. JSTOR offers a robust platform for cross-disciplinary discovery and integration of content that extends the multi-disciplinary reach of Science to students and faculty, including those in non-scientific disciplines. In addition, JSTOR offers to publishers a moving wall policy that protects their ability to obtain current subscription revenue to support ongoing publication. Science is an outstanding source of high-quality, vetted information covering all areas of science, the inclusion of which enhances the value, breadth, and quality of the JSTOR archive. The decision to discontinue participation in JSTOR is in conflict with AAAS’ mission, as a non-profit, membership-based organization, of advancing science and serving society. Withholding future issues of Science from JSTOR, and prohibiting JSTOR from making previously archived Science content available to future JSTOR participants, is an action which diminishes the value and contribution of both AAAS and JSTOR to the international community of researchers, the academy, and society. The undersigned members of the International Coalition of Library Consortia express to AAAS their strong disapproval of the decision to discontinue participation of Science in JSTOR, and emphatically urge AAAS to reconsider its decision in light of the damage such action would bring to the mission and purpose of AAAS. Adopters of This Statement This statement is adopted in principle by member representatives of the "International Coalition of Library Consortia" (ICOLC) whose consortia are listed below.
