The Harvard Law Review publishes articles by professors, judges,
and practitioners and solicits reviews of important recent books from recognized
experts. Each issue also contains pieces by student editors. Published monthly
from November through June, the Review has roughly 2,000 pages
per volume. All articles--even those by the most respected authorities--are
subjected to a rigorous editorial process designed to sharpen and strengthen
substance and tone.
The November issue contains the Supreme Court Foreword (usually by a prominent
constitutional scholar), the faculty Case Comment, twenty-five Case Notes
(analyses by third-year students of the most important decisions of the previous
Supreme Court Term), and a compilation of Court statistics. The February
issue features the annual Developments in the Law project, an in-depth treatment
of an important area of the law.
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.
