JSTORThe JISC Collections website notes that JSTOR “…in developing its Arts and Sciences collections, incorporates the regular feedback they receive from their user and library communities. In response to this feedback, their emphasis for Arts and Sciences IX was to offer a more international representation of titles in content, language, and origin of publication, across the entire collection.”
