Coverage: JSTOR (short for Journal Storage) is a journal archive that holds the complete digitized collections of scholarly journals within several large collections. The collections cover a wide variety of topics in the arts, sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. All articles are included full text. Users can search the entire set at once or search subsets of journals by broad subject disciplines.
JSTOR does not include current journal issues. Because of JSTOR's archival mission, there is a gap, the so-called "moving wall" between the most recently published journal issue and the back issues available in JSTOR. Publishers determine the moving wall length in their license agreements with JSTOR. Moving walls may range from zero to ten years. In calculating the moving wall, the current, incomplete year is not counted. Subscription service: JSTOR.
