The American Midland Naturalist
has been published for 90 years by the
University of Notre Dame. The connotations
of Midland and Naturalist have broadened and
its geographic coverage now includes North
America with occasional articles from other
continents. The old image of naturalist has
changed and the journal publishes what Charles
Elton aptly termed "scientific natural history"
including field and experimental biology. Its
significance and breadth of coverage are
evident in that the American Midland
Naturalist is among the most frequently
cited journals in publications on ecology,
mammalogy, herpetology, ornithology, ichthyology,
parasitology, aquatic and invertebrate biology
and other biological disciplines.
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.
