Access to archived journal articles - JSTOR

JCU Library has many print journals on our shelves, going back quite a few years. However, if you can't find what you're looking for in the stacks, try looking in one of the archival databases that JCU Library subscribes to. 

One of the most well known archival databases is JSTOR.  Their aim is to hold the complete history of various titles, except for the most recent 3-5 years of content. JCU Library subscribes to different archive collections, for students of the sciences and humanities. For example, there are issues of the American Naturalist on JSTOR from the 1860's.  Explore how the nature of scientific inquiry and reporting has evolved over time. Or read about views that were held before some of our more significant advances in knowledge and see how much they've changed!

Head to our Databases page and give it a go!
