Jstor Data For Research

Connect to: JSTOR Data for Research
Producer: JSTOR
Description: Still in beta testing (August 2009), this service enables researchers to analyze the content of the JSTOR database, including data on word frequencies, publication patterns, key terms, and more. The downloading of data sets is not yet available.
Usage Tips: Search techniques are basically the same as with the primary JSTOR database.
For example, to search for the phrase soccer moms, enclose the search words within quotation marks: "soccer moms"
One very important note: Whenever you start a new search, click on "Clear All" in the column on the left. Otherwise, the search interface will try to find a sub-set of your previous search.
