Description: The oldest mathematics journal in the Western Hemisphere in
continuous publication, the American Journal of Mathematics
ranks as one of the most respected and celebrated journals
in its field. Published since 1878, the Journal has earned and
maintained its reputation by presenting pioneering
mathematical papers. It does not specialize, but instead publishes
articles of broad appeal covering the major areas of contemporary
mathematics. The American Journal of Mathematics is used
as a basic reference work in academic libraries, both in the
United States and abroad.
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
combined with another title.
