Teaching the news with JSTOR Daily

JSTOR Daily Logo




JSTOR Daily ( is an online magazine that provides context and background to news stories and current affairs. It publishes short and long posts from journalists and academics, and all pieces link to journal articles on JSTOR for deeper reading. 

We're constantly updating the site with blog posts, columns, long-form essays, and interviews with scholars, so there's always plenty of new material to use as fodder for classroom discussion. Plus, each story provides open links to the content housed in JSTOR, so anyone can explore the underlying scholarship even if their school doesn't  subscribe to all JSTOR collections.

The stories—written by journalists and academics—cover scholarship from a wide array of disciplines and are organized by topics: Arts & Culture, History & Politics, Business & Economics, Science & Technology, and Education & Society. Here are links to some of the most recent articles:

Research Basics: a free, open, academic research skills course

Take advantage of a free course designed to help high school students build research skills and college readiness.

Research Basics is a research fundamentals series developed by JSTOR in conjunction with librarian partners. The course has a scope broader than JSTOR-specific instruction. Its three, standalone modules include self-paced video lessons, interactive learning activities, and mastery quizzes to help high school students acquire knowledge and develop skills in the area of general academic research. As learners complete each module, they earn badges to share. Research Basics is open to everyone.

JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways.
