JSTOR (pronounced JAY-stor;[1] short for Journal Storage) is a digital library founded in 1995. Originally containing digitized back issues of academic journals, it now also includes books and primary sources, and current issues of journals.[2] It provides full-text searches of almost 2,000 journals.[3] More than 8,000 institutions in more than 160 countries have access to JSTOR;[3] most access is by subscription, but some older public domain content is freely available to anyone, and in 2012 JSTOR launched a program providing no-cost access to 3 items for a period of 14 days to old articles for individual scholars and researchers who register.[4]
