What is JSTOR and how do I access it?

JSTOR’s journal archive includes more than two thousand journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. QUB subscribes to most but not all of its content – so you may occasionally not get access to an article.
Please note that JSTOR is an archive collection – you won’t find much current content (i.e. articles published in the last 2-5 years are unlikely to be found). Students requiring very current information should use JSTOR with caution.
You can search JSTOR directly from the following link (you will also find JSTOR in the library catalogue) http://queens.ezp1.qub.ac.uk/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/
Detailed information on searching JSTOR is available here: http://about.jstor.org/sites/default/files/misc/Search_Documentation.pdf
The full-text available from JSTOR can also be found by searching (available on the library homepage www.qub.ac.uk/lib)
