JSTOR Database: JSTOR Search Tips

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



One video tutorial is available under the Video Tutorial tab. You may find more tutorials by searching YouTube for “JSTOR." These tutorials, posted by other libraries, may contain some information that is library specific and not applicable to the MSJC Libraries.

JSTOR also provides tutorials. The tutorials "Advanced Searching in JSTOR" and "How to do Research in JSTOR" are especially helpful.



If you encounter a problem or need help with advanced searching, the link to Help is always available in the upper right corner.

Database Search Features

Use Advanced Search in JSTOR to create stronger search queries.
