Content Linking Guidelines

Brian Larsen

JSTOR encourages the use of links to facilitate access to the Content by Authorized Users and Institutional Licensees, including but not limited to links to online syllabi, bibliographies, and reading lists. All Content has a stable URL that can be found in the Browse and Search interfaces of JSTOR's website as well as on the Article Information page for each discrete Content item. Further information on establishing stable links to material in JSTOR may be obtained from User Support (

Potential linking partners should go to OpenURL LinkingSICI Linking at JSTORJSTOR & The XML Gateway or Metadata, depending on what type of linking your company or other type of organization wants to do. If in doubt, write to

Current Issues Linking for Libraries

Brian Larsen

For some titles, JSTOR displays citation information and an outside link to the full-text of recently published articles that are hosted on external sites. 

For these titles, users are able to search and browse for the title, author, and abstract information for articles in the recent issues in addition to searching the full text for the past articles in the JSTOR archive. Users with a subscription to the journals held by our current issue providers, either through their library or individually, are able to follow direct links to the full-text articles available through these providers.

If an institution has an OpenURL link resolver, we are able to replace these links to external content with a link back to their link resolver. If you would like us activate OpenURL linking, please send your Base URL and customized OpenURL button image (optional) to

JSTOR & Google Scholar

Brian Larsen

On top of getting content directly from your library’s site, users might also find, through Google Scholar results, JSTOR content you license. This is possible due to a partnership between JSTOR and Google Scholar. JSTOR compiles the IP addresses and corresponding licenses of our participating institutions and makes them available in a space that Google Scholar regularly crawls. When Google Scholar sees a user coming from an IP address that is associated with a participating institution, and that user’s search returns results to which they have access on JSTOR, that user will see a link to JSTOR next to the result.

In some cases, our database may be out of sync with your institution's IP addresses. This may happen if your ISP has recently changed, or if your network layout or infrastructure has been modified. Please contact JSTOR Support if you have updated IP addresses, or if you have any questions about what users are or aren’t seeing based on this relationship.
