To search journals in JSTOR, do the following:

  1. Access JSTOR using the Find Databases tab on the Libraries' homepage.
  2. Click on the “Advanced” Link.
  3. Type your publication title in the “publication title” portion of the template without quotation marks. (Keep in mind that your publication title may not be part of the JSTOR collection). 
  4. Type in your keywords or title and/or author and click on Search.

As an alternative, rather than looking for a specific publication title, scroll down on your PC screen and checkmark the subject journal category or categories you wish to search.

(Note: Clicking on the plus icon next to each subject journal category will display the journals you are about to search.) Enter your keywords or title/author and click on “search.”
