JSTOR Offers Open Access as Crusader Takes His Life

Academia has just become more relevant and approachable as JSTOR announced that the archives of 1,200+ academic journals are now available for free reading by the public.

Anyone, including non-academics, can  now sign-up for a JSTOR account.   Non-academic accounts allow access to three articles per every two week period.

JSTOR is available here.

This is largely the result of the battle of the awareness efforts made by 26 year old Aaron Swartz, who recently ended his own life, according to this New York Times article.
