What's in this article:
When you need to link permanently to a JSTOR reference, look for the stable URL on any JSTOR page. These web addresses are listed on every article, and they don't change, 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.
How to create a link that includes your institution's proxy information:
If your institution has a proxy server for remote access, you may want to prepend the proxy information to the stable URL. This is the best choice for syllabi, reading lists, and other materials that you know will be used within the school.
At this time, the JSTOR site does not prepend proxy information to the stable URL automatically. The easiest way to get a proxied link is to copy and paste the URL from the browser navigation bar when you are logged in through the proxy. You can also manually add the proxy information to the URL.
