JSTOR Launches Online Daily Magazine

24 Oct 2014 - 09:30

JSTOR Daily offers a fresh way for people to understand and contextualise their world. Our writers provide insight, commentary, and analysis of ideas, research, and current events, tapping into the rich scholarship on JSTOR, a digital library of more than 2,000 academic journals, dating back to the first volume ever published, along with thousands of monographs, and other material. In addition to weekly feature articles, the magazine publishes daily blog posts that provide the backstory to complex issues of the day in a variety of subject areas, interviews with and profiles of scholars and their work, and much more.


JSTOR Daily attempts to find fresh and new ways to increase the contextual relevance of academic journals by connecting current events to publications within the JSTOR library.

“JSTOR is primarily a digital library, and we haven’t produced our own content before, so this is a real shift for the organisation,” editor Catherine Halley told NiemanLab in a recent interview.

Content that is linked within JSTOR Daily is freely available to readers.
