Dear JSTOR Participant,
Today, JSTOR's General Science Collection has been renamed as the Health & General Sciences Collection to reflect the addition of several journals in the health sciences. Along with the seven titles originally introduced as the General Science Collection in 2000 - Science, PNAS, and the publications of the Royal Society of London - the expanded Health & General Sciences Collection will include several prestigious titles in nursing, as well as a cluster of well-respected titles in epidemiology. This collection has the greatest historical depth of any JSTOR offering - with titles that pre-date most others by more than 150 years. The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London began publishing in 1665.
With the renaming of the collection, the first three health titles are now available: American Journal of Nursing (began publication in 1900), Environmental Health Perspectives (began 1972), and the Journal of Community Health Nursing (began 1984). At least ten further titles will be added over the next two years, including Epidemiology, Epidemiology and Infection, and European Journal of Epidemiology.
Participation fees for this collection will remain unchanged and existing participants of the collection will have access to these new titles starting today. There is no overlap of content in the Health & General Sciences Collection with any of the multi-discipline Arts & Sciences Collections or with the Biological Sciences Collection. Two titles from the collection will continue to be included in the Mathematics & Statistics Collection (see below).
The complete list of titles that we know will be included in Health & General Sciences follows below. Please check Upcoming Journals for additional titles that will be added in the future.
