New Beta From JSTOR Labs: “Juncture, a Free-To-Use, Open Source Framework For Creating Engaging Visual Essays”

From a Blog Post by Alex Humphreys, Director, JSTOR Labs:

I am thrilled to announce JSTOR Labs’ latest: Juncture, a free-to-use, open source framework for creating engaging visual essays.  Juncture allows you to create free and shareable essays where each paragraph is presented alongside interactive maps, zoomable images, and more. Developed initially for the Plant Humanities Lab, Juncture is now available for anyone to use.

What’s Juncture?

Juncture is open source and free to use and to modify. Adhering to minimal computing principles, it uses static files and open technologies to create memorable essays.  All you need to get started is a free Github account.   You can create your first essay in less than 10 minutes, and then as you develop your digital skills add increasingly engaging components.


Like all JSTOR Labs projects, Juncture is a work in progress. We are thrilled to share it with you and eager to hear from you how we can make both it and its documentation better.
