Description: European Journal of Epidemiology, published for the first time
in 1985, serves as a forum on the epidemiology of communicable and non-communicable
diseases and their control. The results of epidemiologic studies are essential
arguments for action in the field of public health policies and efforts are
made to bring the journal to the decision makers' attention. The journal is
also a source of material for those who are actively engaged in teaching epidemiology.
The journal covers the different fields of epidemiology, a science which
has always been multidisciplinary by nature: contributions are encouraged
from the fields of public health planning and control, economy, preventive
medicine, clinical trials, vaccinology, psychology, molecular biology, mathematical
modelization and computer sciences.
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
