JSTOR Arts & Sciences I, II, III & IV Collection UW-W users only is an indexed archive containing the fulltext of scholarly journals, beginning with the very first issue of each title. There is a gap, called a moving wall, of typically 1 to 5 years between the most recently published journal issue and the content available in JSTOR. For some titles, JSTOR includes the citation information for articles that fall in that gap. For these titles, direct links to the fulltext of articles in other UW-W online resources may be provided. fulltext articles in recent issues of some titles are not available in the JSTOR  archive. Some of these titles are available through Project Muse UW-W users only, and JSTOR  graciously provides links to the articles.

Citations, abstracts and fulltext of journal contents may be searched with keywords. It is also possible to browse the collection one issue at a time to find a citation or article.  Articles, reviews and other items, in digitally reproduced PDF image files, may be displayed a page at a time and printed in their entirety with Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
