The Workspace is a tool to organize your research for articles and book chapters you want to work with later. Within the space, group your citations using folders for different topics and projects, or just save items to the space. You can add notes on your items, delete, and move items to and from folders plus export any citation from your workspace when you’re logged in.
The "Save" button appears on your search results page and on the individual article, book chapter, and pamphlet pages. Select "Save," then go to your workspace by clicking the button again, or continue making selections. Citations you've already saved will be indicated by "View Workspace" wherever they appear on JSTOR.
