Description: JSTOR is a database of back issues of core journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Currently available are the complete digitized backfiles of over 1000 scholarly journals, organized in various collections. These collections provide coverage of African-American studies, anthropology, Asian studies, business, ecology and botany, economics, education, finance, general science, history, language and literature, mathematics, music, philosophy, political science, population studies, sociology, and statistics.
Coverage: varies
Journals: Journals
Links:

There are links from JSTOR to titles common to JSTOR and Project MUSE. Links to recent articles in Project MUSE journals have a clickable link [Link to Article] following a citation retrieved in JSTOR.

There are currently links to many journals in the Arts & Sciences I Collection from the Periodicals Index Online database. All journals in the Arts & Sciences Collection which are also indexed in PIO will eventually have links. There are also links to journals in JSTOR from ABELL, America: History and Life, and Historical Abstracts.

Personalization: Register for a MyJSTOR account in order to save citations, e-mail citations, and export citations to bibliographic software (such as RefWorks).
Notes: Each title has a “moving wall” of coverage, usually up to five years before the present. Titles will continue to be added to JSTOR.
Permitted Uses: Users are permitted to download or print one copy of any article for their personal use; users are expressly prohibited from downloading or printing entire issues of any journal. Certain user actions, such as the employment of computer programs that automatically download content (i.e. Web robots, spiders, crawlers, wanderers and accelerators) are not permitted.
Output Formats:

You can export citations to EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, and RefWorks. Choosing the direct export option will automatically open the citation management application.

There are articles in Language & Literature and the final release of Arts & Sciences II that contain language with non-Roman, non-ASCII alphabets. The default display is in transliteration, but if you click on “Display citations on this page in original alphabet” you will view the citation information using the original alphabet.

Help: The JSTOR FAQ Handout gives additional information about the scope of JSTOR and how to search the database. Additional handouts in other languages are also available; consult the Training and Materials page. For further assistance, contact a librarian.
Software Requirements: Some users are experiencing problems when opening JSTOR PDFs on a Mac, iPhone or iPad. Typically the first or last page of the article is missing. The recommended workaround is to open the PDF in Adobe Reader.
Users: unlimited concurrent users
Producer: JSTOR, a not-for-profit organization established with the assistance of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
