Specific search tips, tutorials, and citation help for the JSTOR database.

Citation Styles

The citations below are given as examples only. Be aware that citations copied directly from JSTOR's citation tool may contain errors or have missing elements. Always check the citations carefully and correct any errors, including proper formatting, spacing, capitalization and punctuation. Add any elements that may be missing.


URLs are generally used in citations to show where online materials are located. Since URLs can change, some publishers assign DOIs (digital object identifiers) to online publications. MLA (8th ed.), APA, and Chicago styles prefer DOIs to be used in citations. When no DOI is available, the URL should be used. In JSTOR, the DOI (if available) and a stable URL are provided when you click on the title link from your search results list.
