What is Jstor?

JSTOR (pronounced jay-stor; short for "journal storage") is a digital library founded in 1995. Originally containing digitized back issues of academic journals, it now provides access to more than 10 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines, including books, primary sources, and current issues of journals. 

JSTOR is a highly selective digital library of academic content in many formats and disciplines. The collections include top peer-reviewed scholarly journals as well as respected literary journals, academic monographs, research reports from trusted institutes, and primary sources.

Full runs of more than 2,600 top scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. JSTOR works with a diverse group of nearly 1,200 publishers from more than 57 countries to preserve and make their content digitally available.
