      • All full-text
      • Nearly all academic journals

    • EBSCO/JSTOR
    • Basic Differences EBSCOHost JSTOR Provides content from a wide range of sources (journals (peer-reviewed); magazines, newspapers; monographs, etc.) Provides content from a unique source (scholarly Journals) Allows for recent content/current issues Offers archival content/back issues Has an indexed, standardized subject heading (subjects terms, thesaurus, MeSH) Lacks a standardized subject heading
    • Basic Similarities
      • Both offer academic (and peer-reviewed) content
      • Both are searchable and browsable
      • Both allow cross-disciplinary search
      • In essence, both databases should be conceived of as complementary
