JSTOR access

JSTOR access


In partnership with the University Library we are delighted to offer alumni free remote access to the JSTOR collection of online journals.

What is JSTOR?

JSTOR is a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive of scholarship that includes leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences and sciences, as well as primary sources. It includes over 1,000 leading academic e-journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as other materials valuable for academic work. 

What can I access?

Access to JSTOR is available to all matriculated University of Cambridge alumni and offers a huge range of academic work online free of charge.

Alumni have access to the same set of JSTOR Archive Collections as students and faculty at Cambridge. There are currently over 1,000 e-journals available, with collections including Arts & Sciences I-VIII, Life Sciences, the Ireland collection and 19th-century British pamphlets, as well as a number of individual journal titles. The collection includes the entire back-run from the first issue of every journal, including the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, first published in 1665.
