The Politische Vierteljahresschrift (PVS) has been published since 1960 by the executive and advisory board of the German Association for Political Science (DVPW). The journal provides space for recent research findings from all sub-areas of political science. It therefore contains papers on political theory and the history of ideas; on comparative governance and politics; the domains of policy analysis, international relations and foreign policy; on political sociology; and papers in the areas of empirical social research and methodology.
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
