ARTstor: Images for Academic Publishing (IAP)

To help reduce the expense of publishing images in academic journals and similar publications, ARTstor has initiated the Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) service.  The initial release of nearly 1,700 IAP images comes from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  They can be found within the ARTstor Digital Library by including "IAP" within search terms.  Participating image providers have agreed to make IAP images available free of charge for qualifying publications, while ARTstor has developed the software to deliver the publication-quality images.  Scholars working on a specific publication but who are unaffiliated with an ARTstor participating institution may register for the IAP service by contacting

With the hope that the IAP initiative will promote scholarship and learning and that early success will encourage widespread participation and support, ARTstor and its partners expect that the IAP will include images from multiple sources over time.  For more information, please see ARTstor's Images for Academic Publishing page.
