Databases

JSTOR

JSTOR is a database that contains full-text scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. JSTOR is not the best source for current articles as journal issues are typically added to JSTOR three to five years after publication in what is referred to as a moving wall. It is a great source for older articles as some journals go back as far as the 1800s. The NYFA Library offers access to the following JSTOR database:

Arts & Sciences III

Includes journals in languages and literature, as well as essential titles in the fields of music, film studies, folklore, performing arts, religion, and the history and study of art and architecture. Additional interdisciplinary titles broaden the scope of coverage to include folklore, feminist & women's studies.
