JSTOR, the scholarly journal archive, recently announced new features it has added to make searching article PDFs and finding keywords in articles easier. Articles in the High Quality PDF format on the site have been replaced with a new PDF format, which, besides making searching easier, also allows users to copy text, use screen-reading software, and download the files faster.
