Hints for using JSTOR


The electronic journal database JSTOR will link you to all but the latest issues of the most important scholarly journals. Scholarly journals are much better sources for papers than random pages that you find on the web. Most students in my classes will probably want to limit their searches to journals in Political Science and Latin American Studies.


Access to JSTOR is provided by the WMU Library. If you want to access JSTOR from an off-campus computer, you need to know your Bronco ID and password. Not all the links to JSTOR on WMU web pages provide such access, so if you are trying from off-campus, I suggest you use the links on my website.
