An instructional guide for the JSTOR database


JSTOR is an academic database containing over two thousand journal titles in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.  Using keyword and advanced searches, a researcher can retrieve citations and full text articles from JSTOR.  The articles are in PDF format and they can be downloaded or printed, while citations can be exported to Refworks or other citation applications. 

A link to JSTOR can be found in Barbour Library's database list.  Like other databases in this list, JSTOR can be accessed on campus computers or remotely.
