As part of our mission to support new forms of scholarship, JSTOR accommodates text analysis and digital humanities research by providing datasets for the journals, books, research reports, and pamphlets in the digital library.
Frequently, researchers use the datasets to analyze trends in academic language, map author networks, create visualizations of datasets, and to trace concepts across disciplines and time. Supporting this work highlights the value of the publications beyond the dissemination of scholarship and can lead to the creation of new ways of exploring and discovering scholarship.
JSTOR dataset services are provided at no cost to researchers and libraries. Our Terms & Conditions of Use, referenced from standard library license agreements, covers text mining as a permitted use.
