What's in this article:
When you need to permanently link to a JSTOR reference, look for the stable URL on any JSTOR page. These web addresses are listed on every article so you can cite that URL and know it can be accessed again later.
How to find a stable URL:
You can find the Stable URL (or permanent link) in the citation information for any article. It's right underneath the article title, on the left hand side of the screen
Stable URLs are the best choice for citations, for sharing online, or for sending to a broad audience.
If your institution has a proxy server for remote access, you may want to use a prepended proxy URL. This is the best choice for syllabi, reading lists, and other materials that you know will be used within the school.
When logged into your institution's proxy server, JSTOR will automatically create a prepended proxy URL. The proxy URL can be found on the on the left-hand side of the article page under the Stable URL. Use the copy icon next to the URL to easily copy this link for your use. You can also find a help icon that will explain when it's best to use a proxy link instead of a Stable URL.
