JSTOR is a digital library for scholars, researchers, and students

JSTOR provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines.

We help you explore a wide range of scholarly content through a powerful research and teaching platform. We collaborate with the academic community to help libraries connect students and faculty to vital content while lowering costs and increasing shelf space, provide independent researchers with free and low-cost access to scholarship, and help publishers reach new audiences and preserve their content for future generations.

JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization that also includes Ithaka S+R and Portico. ITHAKA also provides services for Artstor.
