The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie (Journal of Ethnology) has been considered the primary journal of German ethnology for over 100 years. It was founded in 1869 by German scholars Adolf Bastian and Robert Hartmann. The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie publishes articles of a theoretical-methodological nature, with emphasis on empirical knowledge. Authors with new material on the subject of regional ethnology present their methodology, their theoretical perspective and the further development of the theoretical-methodological discussion through their results. The Zeitschrift für Ethnologie also offers a view of German ethnology abroad and provides an international forum for ethnological discussion through the inclusion of the articles by prominent foreign colleagues. The journal is published under the auspices of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Völkerkunde (the German Society for Ethnology) an the Berliner Gesellschaft für Anthropologie, Ethnologie und Urgeschichte (the Berlin Society for Anthropology, Ethnology and Prehistory).
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.
