Alumni access to JSTOR

Alumni of the University of Cambridge can access ejournal content from JSTOR via a partnership between the alumni office and the University Library.


JSTOR is a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive of scholarship that includes leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences and sciences, as well as primary sources. It includes over 1,000 leading academic e-journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as other materials valuable for academic work.

Access to JSTOR is available to all matriculated University of Cambridge alumni and offers a huge range of academic work online free of charge.

JSTORAlumni have access to the same set of JSTOR Archive Collections as students and faculty at Cambridge. There are currently over 1,000 e-journals available, with collections including Arts & Sciences I-VIII, Life Sciences, the Ireland collection and 19th-century British pamphlets, as well as a number of individual journal titles. The collection includes the entire back-run from the first issue of every journal, including the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, first published in 1665.

Please see the alumni website for details on how to access JSTOR via your alumni account or you email address.

A title list for the archive can be found here (this list shows the ‘moving walls’ where our access ends. The archive does not allow access to the most recent content in most cases.).

You can access journals from the archive via a title search on the ejournals A-Z.
