JSTOR (short for Journal Storage) started as a project to digitized academic journals in a variety of subject areas as a preservation tool for future researchers.
Unlike most databases, JSTOR starts with the first issue of a journal and does not have access to its most recent publications. Instead, journal issues are typically added to JSTOR 3 to 5 years after publication in what is referred to as a moving wall.
