New features on JSTOR - excellent for researchers

As many of you will be aware the library subscribes to JSTOR which consists of a huge range of journals, many full text, from the humanities, social sciences and sciences. JSTOR also contains 19th Century British Pamphlets, including Foreign and Commonwealth Office Collection and Wilson Anti-Slavery Collection.
There are some new features on JSTOR which will help you keep up to date with your research. All you need to do is register for a MyJSTOR account - connect to JSTOR and select the MyJSTOR option. You can then:

  • Set up an alert and receive emails when new content is added to the database which matches your saved search terms

  • Set up Table of Contents (eTOC) email alerts - when viewing a journal article or list of volumes and issues, you have the option to track future additions to the journal contents in JSTOR with an "eTOC" (electronic table of contents) alert

  • Track citations - check the box next to the citation you want to track. You will receive an email message if another article cites the article you are tracking and is added to the JSTOR archive.

JSTOR is available from anywhere (Athens account needed for off campus access) from our list of databases at
