Understanding the U.S. Constitution from JSTOR Labs

By Ithaka Harbors

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Are you researching the history of women’s suffrage? Looking for articles analyzing the abolition of slavery in the United States? Or a budding constitutional law nerd? This app will help you understand the Constitution and its place in U.S. history and government.
“Understanding the U.S. Constitution from JSTOR Labs” is a free reference and research tool for high school and college-level teachers and students. The app provides a new way to explore the Constitution by linking every section of the text to the academic scholarship on JSTOR that cites or quotes that section, clause, or amendment. 
This app includes:

- the full text of the Constitution 
- links to relevant research articles in academic journals on JSTOR

More than 60% of the journal articles are free to read online at JSTOR with a registered account, or may even be available through your school’s subscription. 
The Constitution is the foundation of the United States legal system. Download this free app to learn about its interpretations throughout history, and like Benjamin Franklin, understand the context of its evolution:
“I confess that there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them. For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information, or fuller consideration, to change opinions even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise.”

— Benjamin Franklin, 1787

Everything I'd expect

I've tried a couple other constitution apps, this one has everything I want, it works fast, it's clean and professionally presented. For version 1.0.0 this hits a home run!

Pretty awesome

Surprised this app doesn't have more reviews since it's of high quality in its presentation and its overall user friendly navigation. I'll wait for the Bill of Rights to be added!! (Or so I hope).
