The Journal 'Science' Rejoins JSTOR

The influential journal Science has reversed course and rejoined
JSTOR, The Chronicle has learned. The journal and the popular online
archive of scholarly publications reached an agreement this morning,
said a spokesperson for Science. The journal's decision to withdraw
last summer was the subject of much criticism by librarians and others.

Neither Science nor JSTOR would describe the terms of the new
license, but Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science, which publishes the
journal, said the changes had to do with price and with linking of
articles within JSTOR to other articles. "We're very pleased about
it," he said.

Michael P. Spinella, executive director of JSTOR, echoed Mr.
Leshner's cheer. "I think it's very good for everyone," he said. -
