Description: French Historical Studies, the leading journal on the history
of France, publishes articles, commentaries, and research notes on all periods
of French history from the Middle Ages to the present. The journal's diverse
format includes forums, review essays, special issues, and articles in French,
as well as bilingual abstracts of the articles in each issue. Also featured
are bibliographies of recent dissertations and books and announcements of fellowships,
prizes, and conferences of interest to French historians.
Special issues in preparation discuss recent perspectives on the history
of Paris, colonialism and the writing of French history, and visual arts
in the writing of French History.
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
