What is J-STAGE?
J-STAGE is an electronic journal platform for science and technology information in Japan, developed and managed by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). J-STAGE aims to accelerate the speed of communication and ensure the internationalization of the science and technology information published in Japan. By providing an online publication platform, J-STAGE supports Japanese societies and research organizations, and has published more than 2,000 journals, conference proceedings and other academic publications with high speeds at low costs.
J-STAGE offers support to publishers in the form of the entire publication process, from submission and peer-review process to publishing. J-STAGE users can also access and create their own libraries of information anytime and anywhere with the assistance of J-STAGE. These libraries can be used on multiple devices.
On the Journal@rchive initiative (Preserving intellectual property in Japan)
JST had launched a project named "Journal@rchive" in 2002. This project entails electronically archiving older, historically important paper-based Japanese journals from their first issue to the latest.
We have successfully archived 664 journals within 5 years since 2009. We published the archived journals on the Journal@rchive website globally, and made available the past important publications to the general public worldwide. This archive includes papers authored by Nobel Prize winners such as Hideki Yukawa, Shinichiro Tomonaga, and Kenichi Fukui, and other famous scientists such as Hantaro Nagaoka, Johkichi Takamine, and Umetaro Suzuki.
The website of Journal@rchive is now integrated with J-STAGE, and you can browse all the publications from the first volume/issue onwards on this platform.
