Any researcher affiliated with a big institution already had access to the articles in JSTOR. It’s the independent researchers who have been locked out.
Personally I have followed a trail of searching up to the locked door at JSTOR many times. It always disgusted me.
People doing research for its own sake are doing something great and beautiful. They are not drones, not on automatic, not following the path of office politics.
These are the people who needed JSTOR to be liberated.
