JSTOR Adds Hebrew Language Journals
In December 2013, JSTOR announced the Hebrew Journals Collection, which will add at least 40 Hebrew-language titles to JSTOR by completion.
The collection culminates JSTOR’s collaboration with the National Library of Israel and the University of Haifa Library. It also builds upon a free pilot program for four Hebrew-language journals begun in 2008. Hebrew journals are fully integrated and searchable on the JSTOR platform, with added support for Hebrew content including right-to-left reading for Hebrew articles.
This is the first collection of journals in a non-Roman language on JSTOR, and expands JSTOR’s efforts to add global scholarship to the platform.
