Founded in 1959 by a group of professors from Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and UMass Amherst, MR is one of the nation's leading literary magazines, distinctive in joining highest-level artistic concerns with pressing public issues. "It is amazing that so much significant writing on race and culture appears in one magazine" (The New York Times).
A 200-page quarterly of fiction, poetry, essays, and the visual arts (its original template was designed by artist Leonard Baskin) by both emerging talents and Pulitzer and Nobel prizewinners, special issues have covered women's rights, civil rights, and Caribbean, Canadian, and Latin American literatures.
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.
