JSTOR's Text Analyzer

A new way to search

Introducing Text Analyzer

  • JSTOR Text Analyzer combines features of text analysis and database searching to expand search results.
  • Since Text Analyzer is still in Beta test mode, it has glitches. Road Test #1 shows the limitations of Text Analyzer. 
  • To try Text Analyzer, go to the JSTOR database. (You just clicked on the permalink to JSTOR. If you are searching from off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your SSU user name and password to establish that you are a member of the SSU community). 
  • Find Text Analyzer on the link just below the main JSTOR search box. There is a red "Beta" box next to it:

  • Text Analyzer only appears on the main JSTOR search box.
  • It does not appear on any other search box.
  • So, if you find an article you want to input, save the article to your computer.
  • Then, toggle back to the first JSTOR screen to use Text Analyzer.
  • Text Analyzer will prompt you to upload your document from your computer.
