The JSTOR database is a digital archive of fully searchable back issues of scholarly journals in anthropology, Asian Afro American studies, ecology, economics, education, finance, general science, history, literature, mathematics, music, philosophy, political science, sociology, and statistics.

Access it either by clicking JSTOR or by clicking on the Research Databases link on the BC Libraries home page; then click the "By Title" tab, type "jstor" and click go.

Access to JSTOR is open to members of the Boston College community: current students, staff, and faculty.

Though JSTOR is a useful database, please be aware that it is far from comprehensive. If you want more complete results within a particular field, consider searching for an appropriate subject-specific database in the links below.
