This Libguide will cover using the JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection database. The JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection has an intuitive basic search interface, but by using the advanced features described in this guide you will be able to refine your searching and identify the best resources for your research needs.
The JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection provide access to academic journals and books concerning the history and philosophy of religion. While there is some overlap with the journal coverage in Atla Religion Database, the JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection contains unique journal titles unavailable in the Atla Religion Database. Like Atla, JSTOR Religion and Theology provides access to both full-text articles and abstracts. Unlike Atla, it also incorporates book chapters, reports, and primary source content. JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection is an excellent supplement to Atla Religion Database.
