Description: Sociological Perspectives, the official quarterly of the Pacific Sociological Association, was established in 1957 to advance research, theory, scholarship, and practice within sociology and related disciplines. The journal publishes articles that are of general interest to members of the discipline and that, as a result, allow for the further accumulation of knowledge about social processes. Additionally, Sociological Perspectives is also the only sociology journal in the world to provide foreign abstracts in Spanish, Japanese, and Chinese in every issue.
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
