Description: Demography is the official journal of the Population Association of
America. It is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed periodical that
publishes articles of general interest to population scientists. Fields
represented in its contents include geography, history, biology,
statistics, business, epidemiology, and public health, in addition to
social scientific disciplines such as sociology, economics, psychology,
and political science. Published quarterly, it includes theoretical and
methodological articles, commentaries, and specialized research papers
covering both developed and developing nations.
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
