Journal Access

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Why is Oregon Historical Quarterly only accessible up through 2010?

A:Hello,
The journal Oregon historical quarterly is only available to 2010 as JSTOR does not provide access to the most current issues of journals because of agreements made with publishers. In most cases 2-5 full years plus the current calendar year are excluded, except for selected titles from the Current Scholarship Collection.
