About Sustainability Resources on JSTOR

Sustainability, also commonly known as ‘resilience,’ is the ability to adapt to and overcome environmental, ecological, economic, developmental and other challenges to ensure long-term growth, and the literature available on JSTOR looks at this broad topic through a very interdisciplinary lens. Subtopics include sustainable business practices, urban planning and development, disaster readiness, conversation, climatology, resource management, energy policy, and more.

The largest concentration of relevant scholarship is available in the JSTOR Sustainability Collection, which features:

  • More than 100 journals from over 20 disciplines, including environmental studies, environmental science, business, economics, law, aquatic & atmospheric sciences, ecology, urban studies and the built environment.
  • Over 5,000 research reports from more than 30 leading think tanks around the world. These often hard-to-find research reports include policy briefs, technical papers, white papers, and discussion papers from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, corporations, policy institutions, and academic centers. 

Complementing this collection are 10 journals and 40+ ebooks available Open Access and, for libraries participating in the Books at JSTOR program, 1,000+ frontlist and backlist titles from renowned scholarly publishers, such as Yale University Press, University of California Press, and University of Minnesota Press.
