JSTOR Database


JSTOR is an archive of core research journals containing the full text of scholarly journals. The library subscribes to these JSTOR Arts and Sciences Collections: I, II, III, IV, V, and VII with 1,170 journals. Some of the journal issues go back to the 19th century, but there is a gap of typically 1 to 5 years between the most recently published journal issue and the content available in JSTOR.
