Permalinks in JSTOR

JSTOR provides permalinks to content via stable URLs.  Users should add the campus proxy prefix to a Stable URL to ensure that it works for Dickinson users who are working off-campus or outside of the Dickinson network. 

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 stable URL 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.
  3. Copy and paste this link. This is your permalink.
  4. Add the Dickinson proxy prefix (https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=) to the permalink to provide seamless off-campus access for Dickinson users. For example, if your stable URL is https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245, it would become https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245

A Table of Contents listing that shows two article entries, with both URLs (e.g. https://www.jstor/stable/24784245) highlighted.

From the Article or Chapter page:

  1. Locate the descriptive information about the article at the top or left side of the page.
  2. Find the URL listed with this descriptive information.
  3. Copy and paste this link. This is your permalink.
  4. Add the Dickinson proxy prefix (https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=) to the permalink to provide seamless off-campus access for Dickinson users. For example, if your stable URL is https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245, it would become https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245

An article page in JSTOR that shows the decriptive information for the article (e.g. title, issue, and volume), with the URL (e.g. https://jstor.org/stable/24784245) highlighted.

 

Link to a Book or Journal Issue

From a Book or Journal Issue page:

  1. Locate the descriptive information about the book or journal issue at the top of the page.
  2. Find the URL listed with this descriptive information.
  3. Copy and paste this link. This is your permalink.
  4. Add the Dickinson proxy prefix (https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=) to the permalink to provide seamless off-campus access for Dickinson users. For example, if your stable URL is https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245, it would become  https://envoy.dickinson.edu/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/24784245.

A page showing information about a complete book or journal issue, with the stable JSTOR URL (https://www.jstor.stable/resrep14805) highlighted.
