JSTOR allows Winona State full-text access to back issues over one hundred core scholarly journals, across a variety of disciplines. In the case of some journals, the run of back issues extends back to the 19th-Century. To prevent publishers from losing revenue, JSTOR uses what is called a "moving wall," which means it will always maintain a 2 to 5 year gap from its most recent holding to the present. It is possible to search JSTOR holdings, or to simply browse the journals by subject area.
