Permalinks in JSTOR

JSTOR provides permalinks to content via stable URLs.

When copying a permalink, be sure it contains envoy.dickinson.edu, the Dickinson proxy information.  Links with the proxy URL will provide seamless off-campus access for Dickinson users.

Detailed instructions are provided below.

Link to a Specific Article or Chapter

If you want to link to a specific article from a journal, there are two ways to do so, both utilizing the URL with proxy permalink that JSTOR provides.

From Journal or Book Table of Contents Page:

  1. Find the article that you want to use.
  2. Highlight the URL listed below the article title. It includes the Dickinson proxy information (envoy.dickinson.edu), which will provide seamless off-campus access for Dickinson users. 
  3. Copy and paste this link. This is your permalink.
