Spotify For Academics

  • DeepDyve:  This is a peer-reviewed journal article database accessible for $40.00 US per month allowing for unlimited reading, similar to a Spotify Premium account.  It is important to note that although access is unlimited, you cannot print all of the articles (only 20 pages per month is permitted). Although based primarily on the needs of science, the service has expanded to include business and the social sciences and other content. If you cannot find an article in our databases for free, then you might want to consider searching for it in DeepDyve to discover if there is a low cost access option available.

Access Options

  • For people who need access to more journal content and want to download PDF copies of articles, JPASS is an affordable individual plan that includes access to more than 1,800 archival journals. Individuals who purchase a one-month or one-year plan gain unlimited reading access and limited downloading of all articles in the JPASS Collection.  Please note, although this model allows access to journals, they are primarily accessible online. You are limited to the number of journal articles for printing or saving. However, it is still an affordable option for $20 dollars per month.
