JSTOR: Text Analyzer

JSTOR provides access to more than 12 million journal articles, books, images, and primary sources in 75 disciplines

What is JSTOR Text Analyzer?

  • Search for more relevant keywords for your research
  • Upload a document with text in it. This can be anything: a paper you're writing, an outline of a work in progress, an article you just downloaded, even a picture of a page of your textbook. Any of these formats (csv, doc, docx, gif, htm, html, jpg, jpeg, json, pdf, png, pptx, rtf, tif (tiff), txt, xlsx)
  • JSTOR doesn't store the document you use with Text Analyzer. The text is analyzed within the document and extracts the relevant terms without retaining the text itself
  • The text analysis finds key topics and terms used, and then uses the ones it deems most important — the "prioritized terms" — to find similar content in JSTOR.
  • After the text analysis, review the results and download articles of interest
  • Adjust the results you're seeing by adding, removing or adjusting the importance of the prioritized terms.
