JSTOR exposes secondary school students to peer-reviewed scholarly research for the first time.  It also helps teachers enrich their classrooms with key scholarly literature, and gives librarians a resource of more than 2,000 academic journals and 20,000 scholarly books

Archival Journal Collections

JSTOR's secondary schools collection includes all Arts & Sciences Collections on JSTOR, the Life Sciences Collection, as well as four primary source collections.

Secondary schools may also provide access to the Ireland Collection, the Jewish Studies Collection, and the Hebrew Journals Collection for separate sets of fees.

Archival content on JSTOR includes the complete archival record of each journal.  Coverage begins at the first volume and issue of the journal ever published, and extends up to a publication date usually set in the past three to five years.

Current Journals

Launched in 2011 as the Current Scholarship Program, JSTOR's current journals bring numerous benefits to the communities JSTOR works with.  Current journals are offered across subjects in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.


Launched in 2012, Books at JSTOR provided access to electronic books alongside journal titles on the JSTOR platform.  At present, Books at JSTOR offers tens of thousands of books from dozens of leading publishers.
