From museums of fine arts to cultural heritage centers, JSTOR provides the most important scholarship on the topics museums need. Content on JSTOR is used regularly by curators, educators, docents, and other research staff. 


Archival Journal Collections

Museums receive access to nearly all archival journal content for one set of fees. The Museums Collection comprises millions of articles and primary source materials across a range of subjects. Disciplinary coverage is broad, with strong coverage in journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.


Museums may also choose to add the Jewish Studies Collection, the Hebrew Journals Collection, the Ireland CollectionStruggles for Freedom in Southern AfricaAfrican Cultural Heritage Sites and Landscapes, and Global Plants for separate sets of fees.

Archival content on JSTOR includes the complete archival record of each journal. Coverage begins at the first volume and issue of the journal ever published, and extends up to a publication date usually set in the past three to five years.
