Description: Social Forces is a journal of social research highlighting sociological inquiry
but also exploring realms shared with social psychology, anthropology, political
science, history, and economics. The journal's intended academic readers include
sociologists, social psychologists, criminologists, economists, political
scientists, anthropologists, and students of urban studies, race/ethnic
relations, and religious studies.
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.
