Description: Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory presents timely and authoritative 'topical syntheses', original articles that critically assess and integrate research on a specific subject in archaeological method or theory. More than a bibliographic essay, each article creates a framework for synthesizing findings, offers incisive commentary on previous work, and identifies research priorities.
The journal includes articles on the history of archaeology, method- or theory-focused case studies, and significant explorations on the cutting edge. Written by experts, the articles benefit an international audience of archaeologists, students of archaeology, and practitioners of closely related disciplines.
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
