Join Us in Creating a Space for Interdisciplinary Research

JSTOR is developing a common space to discover resources on sustainability across academic disciplines. Created in collaboration with librarians, scholars, graduate students, and policy researchers, JSTOR Sustainability aims to be a vital resource for those working in this emerging field – a digital library of academic and policy research covering issues of environmental stress and its impact on human society, alongside tools to help navigate research across disciplines. 

Sustainability Work

JSTOR Sustainability will include scholarship from a wide array of disciplines, anchored by these fields:

  • Environmental Studies
  • Economics
  • Management
  • Law
  • Policy
  • Urban Studies

Research will be grounded in core areas of inquiry, including:

  • Environmental and climate change policy and law
  • Food Security and Agriculture
  • Resource Economics
  • Forestry and land Use
  • Energy studies
  • Sustainable urbanization
By participating in this testing, you’ll receive access to the JSTOR Sustainability beta, which features more than 200,000 journal articles and research reports in fields including environmental studies, environmental law, resource and environmental economics, urban studies, food security and agriculture, energy studies, and more. You’ll also be able to test drive features to help navigate content outside of your discipline – including topic pages, guides to influential articles, and background reading recommendations that appear on every article page.

Sign up to participate in the JSTOR Sustainability beta testing

You’ll receive access to the beta through the end of 2015, with the ability to extend access should you need it. 

We may occasionally survey you for feedback on whether JSTOR Sustainability meets your research and teaching needs, and you’ll have the ability to provide feedback at any point to help us improve.
