Description: Founded in 1961 by Emile Benveniste, Pierre Gourou and Claude Levi-Strauss, Homme encompasses a wide range of current research in the anthropological field without neglecting the importance of an interdisciplinary approach. The journal consists of theoretical texts, critical essays and ethnographic studies with a focus on having an appropriate understanding of both the past and the present; taking inventory of new objects; reevaluating the classical areas of anthropology; and presenting new methods of investigation in the social and cultural disciplines. Homme has an international audience and has been selection of the Institute for Scientific Information and is indexed by Current Contents and the Anthropological Index. The journal publishes original works of both French and international scholars and is published quarterly
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
