Kevin M. Guthrie on Changes at JSTOR/ITHAKA
Readers of my earlier post concerning the University of Illinois Press joining the new JSTOR current content initiative may wish to know that Kevin M. Guthrie, President of ITHAKA, has offered an extended comment on the original post that seeks to address my concerns about consolidation and conflict of interest. It can be found here: https://jasonbairdjackson.com/2009/10/28/the-university-of-illinois-press-signs-agreement-with-jstor/
I want to thank Kevin for taking the time to offer his reflections on what ITHAKA and the JSTOR project are doing. His remarks are well spoken and, as he suggests, we’ll all be able to form clearer opinions on these questions as matters move along.
