Cardiff University JSTOR

JSTOR Daily is an online publication that contextualizes current events with scholarship. Drawing on the richness of JSTOR’s digital library of more than 2,000 academic journals, thousands of monographs, and other materials, JSTOR Daily stories provide background—historical, scientific, literary, political, and otherwise—for understanding today’s often-confusing world. We’re proud to publish articles based in fact and grounded by careful research.

JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways.

What We Publish

Our writers are scholars, journalists, critics, scientists, and—above all—keen observers of the world around them. We publish weekly long-form feature articles that explore the sometimes-hidden depths of newsy topics. In addition, our daily blog posts explore parallels between existing lines of study and the headlines of the day. We also showcase regular columns by subject-matter experts writing for a popular audience. In general, we like stories that are thought-provoking, reader-friendly, unique, and—most importantly—backed by academic integrity and peer review. In addition, our long form features are fact-checked by an independent contractor.

All of our stories contain links to free, publicly accessible research on JSTOR.
