Electronic Resource


DescriptionFulltext archive of core scholarly journals in the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. A unique e-journal database of complete backfiles of core scholarly journals in the arts and sciences. The backfiles start with the first volume (some date back to the 1800's) and continue up to the current 2 to 5 years (JSTOR refers to this as a "moving wall"...the gap between the latest issue available in JSTOR and the current issue). Current issues of the e-journal may be available direct from the publisher or through another e-journal aggregator such as Project MUSE. JSTOR and Project MUSE have enabled reciprocal linking for titles held in common so that users may access both current and archive holdings. The Library subscribes to the majority of the available arts & sciences and subject collections in JSTOR...over 900 titles. There is some overlap between selected subject and the multidisciplinary collections:
SubjectsArchitecture & architectural history, art & art history, biological sciences, botany, african american studies, anthropology, asian studies, botany, business, classics, ecology, economics, education, english, finance, general science, history, language & literature, life sciences, mathematics and statistics, music, philosophy, political science, and sociology, as well as 19th Century British Pamphlets.
CoverageVolume 1 through to a "moving wall" embargo period of the last 2 to 5 years that varies by title
