*JSTOR is a research resource which hosts full texts of back issues of thousands of academic journals. One of these is the Journal of the Charlotte M. Yonge Fellowship. A rolling three-year timelag is applied, which means that CMYF members have the advantage of receiving their hard copies of the Journal as published in alternate even-numbered years, whereas JSTOR users do not get access to the two most recent issues.
