JSTOR Stable URLs

jstor logo JSTOR is a full-text database of academic and scholarly journals in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Coverage begins with volume one of each title and usually continues usually to a moving wall end date of 3 to 5 years previous. Graphs, photographs, and other images are included.

A stable URL can be created to a particular article, volume, or issue in JSTOR. Anyone who uses a stable URL or durable link must have access to the database from which the URL came. Therefore, off-campus users must be authenticated as part of Madison Area Technical College through EZproxy. Off-campus users who click on a Madison College Ezproxy stable URL will be prompted to enter their username and password.

To create a JSTOR Stable URL at the article level:

  1. Login to JSTOR and locate an article of interest.

    JStor stable URL
  2. Underneath the bibliographic information is the Stable URL. Do not use the link from the browser address bar; Use the Stable URL.

  3. To make sure links are also available for off-campus access through EZproxy: Select, copy and paste the entire Stable URL and use the Madison Area Technical College EZproxy URL Creator to append the EZproxy prefix https://ezproxy.madisoncollege.edu/login?url= to the stable URL.

  4. Paste the entire JSTOR Stable URL with the Madison Area Technical College EZproxy prefix added into your document, Blackboard, webpage, or email.

  5. Test the link.
