New Research Tool: JSTOR

Jump to Comments

jstor_logoJSTOR (Journal Storage) is an electronic archive of academic journals. JTCC subscribes to four of JSTOR’s collections, which gives students and faculty to approximately 550 journals. The collections are particularly strong in the humanities, notably history, language, literature, political science, art, and philosophy. JSTOR journals work on a moving wall system; there is a time lag of (usually) 3 to 5 years from the most current issue of a publication and the full text available in JSTOR.

Crucial facts:

  • All full text, so no frustration with finding the perfect citation with no access to the article.
  • Facilitates interdisciplinary research (like background on the Victorian era when studying Charles Dickens).
  • Digital formats with links to related articles and related references in Google Scholar.

Check for JSTOR on the main databases page on the JTCC library website and add another tool to your researcher’s toolbox.
