Provides full-text access to articles in leading academic journals in the fields of humanities, social sciences and sciences, in most cases from the inception of the journal. Please note that 1) it does not provide wide coverage of the journals in any
given field and 2) it does not include the last 2-5 years of any given title, depending on contract. It also does not contain abstracts, which are very useful research tools because they give you an overview of the argument of an article. Like all full-text databases, JSTOR is very tricky to search intelligently. Use it—it’s great—but don’t stop there!
