By default, the first screen you will see in JSTOR is the advanced search screen with the following default options.
You may want to use more than two concepts in your search. You can add a new row by using the Add a Field button.
If you select the article checkbox, you will not see book reviews, pamphlets, and other miscellaneous items.
You can narrow your results by selecting a discipline or disciplines to search.
You can also narrow your search by changing the option for where search terms need to appear. By default this is full-text. While abstract is presented as an option, most articles in JSTOR do not include abstracts. Occasionally you may want to specify that a word show up in the article title.
If you want to find synonyms or variants of one of your search term, use the boolean operator "or."
