JSTOR Daily is an online publication that contextualizes current events with scholarship. It functions as a bridge–linking popular news stories to academic research.  Great place to start a research project.

“Our writers are scholars, journalists, critics, scientists, and—above all—keen observers of the world around them. We publish weekly long-form feature articles that explore the sometimes-hidden depths of newsy topics. In addition, our daily blog posts explore parallels between existing lines of study and the headlines of the day. We also showcase regular columns by subject-matter experts writing for a popular audience. In general, we like stories that are thought-provoking, reader-friendly, unique, and—most importantly—backed by academic integrity and peer review. In addition, our long form features are fact-checked by an independent contractor.

JSTOR DailyAll of our stories contain links to free, publicly accessible research on JSTOR, which is short for journal storage.” (from the publisher)
