Description: The Journal of Military History is published quarterly by the
Society for Military History, an organization of about 2000 historians and
persons with a scholarly interest in military history. The organization (formerly
the American Military Institute) was established in 1937, and has published
a quarterly journal under various titles since that date. The Journal--published
in January, April, July, and October-- includes scholarly articles and book
reviews on topics in military history from all chronological periods and geographical
Note: The Journal of Military History has undergone several
name changes. It began publication in 1937 as The Journal of the American
Military History Foundation, and became The Journal of the American
Military Institute in 1939. In 1941 the title was changed to Military
Affairs, and in 1989 it became The Journal of Military 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
