For 56 years, The Journal of Asian Studies has been
recognized as the most authoritative and prestigious publication in the
field of Asian Studies. This quarterly has been published regularly since
November 1941, offering Asianists a wealth of information unavailable
elsewhere. Each issue contains four to five feature articles on topics
involving the history, arts, social sciences, philosophy, and contemporary
issues of East, South, and Southeast Asia, as well as a large book review
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.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
