Description: The British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies is a refereed academic
journal published for the British Society for Middle Eastern Studies (popularly
known as BRISMES). The editors aim to maintain a balance in the Journal's coverage
between the modern social sciences and the more traditional disciplines associated
with Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies. They welcome scholarly contributions
on all aspects of the Middle East from the end of classical antiquity and the
rise of Islam. Articles on the language, literature, history, politics, economics,
anthropology, sociology, geography, and the religions and cultures of the region
The British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies also includes
a vigorous review section covering publications on all subjects connected
with the Middle East. This incorporates a wide range of reference and bibliographical
material seldom reviewed elsewhere.
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
