BEWARE. Use this database with caution. While it is multidisciplinary and provides a full text archive of core scholarly journals in selected disciplines, all content is 3-5 years out of date because the company has an embargo period. Use the other databases first and use the "SFX" button to reach the full text. Searching JSTOR directly should only be searched for those years prior to 1963, when the other databases begin.
BEWARE. While this database includes the full-text of articles published in over 100 journals from from Johns Hopkins University Press and other university and academic publishers, its coverage only begins in 1995. It is probably better to search MLA International Bibliography first and use the "SFX" button to take you into Project MUSE, if this source has the full text.
