Getting Better Results with JSTOR

Tips for searching this database

Advanced Searching

Advanced searching in JSTOR allows several strategies that help make your results more specific. These are shown in the illustration image or screen shot below. You may:

  • Limit by type, such as to articles, book reviews, pamphlets and so on.
  • By date range, such as within a range of years
  • By language
  • By a publication's title
  • By ISBN (for books and book reviews).

On the screen below these limiters are a list of groups of journals by subject. If you check the boxes to the left of a group or groups, you will limit your search to within these publications, which can be very helpful in a collection this large. The image shows just the start of the alphabetical list.
