JSTOR has a tool called a Text Analyzer that you can use to find articles that are similar to content you’ve already found or written. It works by processing the text you upload, identifying key words and topics, and recommending related resources within the JSTOR database.

You can access JSTOR through the A-Z Database List link on the library home page. From the JSTOR home page or search result page, click on the “Tools” menu and then, click on “Text Analyzer.” If you want to analyze a JSTOR article or book chapter you’ve already found, paste in the stable URL for the JSTOR resource. Alternatively, you can drag and drop your own document.

Once the Text Analyzer returns search results to you, you can change the keywords it has prioritized by removing or adding topics in the margin on the left side of the page.

For more information, check out JSTOR’s guide, Research Tools on JSTOR, and reach out to the Shapiro Library Reference Desk with any questions you may have.
