JSTOR is a multi-disciplinary database of archived scholarly journals. Subjects include: business, political science, philosophy, history, life sciences, literature, music, art history, health sciences and more.

TWU subscribes to these JSTOR Collections:

  • Arts & Sciences I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, XI
  • Life Sciences: Includes Biological Sciences, Health and General Sciences
  • Ecology & Botany: Ecology, Botany, Natural Sciences

Our JSTOR collections do not contain current issues of journals, and typically have a "moving wall" of 3 - 5 years.

As of summer 2010, JSTOR has launched a new interface which incorporates their Current Scholarship Program. Indexing will now appear for current content from 174 journals. To find out if TWU has print or online access to these titles, click on the "Where Can I Get This?" link.

Please contact the Library if you have any questions about the new interface.

Formats Indexed: Periodical articles

Update Frequency: JSTOR's "Moving Wall" Policy

Coverage: Historical to current; 3-5 years embargo is common (some 0-10 years).
