Epoka University has become a JSTOR member

 

On October 2014, Epoka University was granted full membership at JSTOR, a shared digital library created in 1995 that includes more than 2,000 academic journals. 

JSTOR found to help libraries and academic publishers transition their activities from print to digital operations, to expand access to scholarly content around the world and to preserve it for future generations. Furthermore JSTOR first started thinking about data and text mining back in 1999, when they learned that Fred Shapiro was using JSTOR to find the earliest known uses of words that pre-dated the record of first uses of terms from the Oxford English Dictionary. In 2008, JSTOR introduced the ‘Data for Research” (DfR) service, a free data mining tool for journal content on JSTOR.

Every member of Epoka staff can access to JSTOR’s collections by going to http://www.jstor.org/  and searching or browsing for content that focus on anthropology, archaeology and related fields – 247 journals with every single article in full
