Description: Paleobiology, founded to provide a forum for the greater integration
of paleontology and biology, began publication in 1975. Paleobiology publishes
original articles that emphasize biological or paleobiological processes and
patterns including: speciation, extinction, development of individuals and colonies,
natural selection, evolution, and patterns of variation, abundance and distribution
of organisms in space and time. Papers concerning recent organisms and systems
are also included if they aid in understanding the fossil record and the history
of life. In addition to research articles of moderate length, Paleobiology provides
an outlet for shorter and longer pieces. The Matters of the Record section features
succinct, up-to-date discussions of new discoveries, reviews of recent conceptual
advances, and brief syntheses of important topics. Paleobiology also
publishes short book essays in its Book Review section. In 1999 Paleobiology began
publication of an occasional series, Paleobiology Memoirs, which
provides an outlet for longer works on the same topics covered in regular research
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.
