Here is a direct link to JSTOR, one of our most popular journal collections.  Access is available for currently affiliated U of M Library users.


JSTOR is an interdisciplinary e-journal archive.  Since it is an archive, the most recently published issues (past 3-5 years) are not available from JSTOR.  New issues are added to the archive each year.

For the most recent years of a journal that are not in JSTOR, search our U of M Libraries e-journal page and then link into the journal with FindIt! 

If we don't have access to the recent years, currently U of M library users can request copies of articles of interest from Interlibrary Loan.
