The Berkeley Journal of Sociology (BJS) has been in publication since 1955. One of the only graduate-student run journals in the field of sociology, the BJS makes a special effort to publish the work of graduate students and untenured faculty. Journal volumes are organized around an annual theme. Since 2001 (Volume 45), each journal volume has included transcripts from roundtable discussions held at the BJS annual conference in Berkeley, California.
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.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
