JSTOR exposes secondary school students to peer-reviewed scholarly research for the first time. It also helps teachers enrich their classrooms with key scholarly literature across more than 50 disciplines.


Archival Journal Collections

JSTOR’s Secondary Schools Collection includes all Arts & Sciences Collections, the Life Sciences, Ecology & Botany II, and Business IV Collections, as well as our four primary source collections. The package is offered with significant cost savings for secondary schools, encompassing nearly every archival journal on JSTOR. Secondary schools may also provide access to the Ireland Collection, the Jewish Studies Collection, and the Hebrew Journals Collection for separate sets of fees.

For secondary schools in the UK and British International Schools, we work with JCS Online Resources for participation. You can read the overview of JSTOR in the JCS Resource Catalogue, and you can email info@jcsonlineresources.org for further details on participation.
