Description: Issues of public concern often have an important philosophical
dimension. Philosophy and Public Affairs is founded in the belief that
a philosophical examination of these issues can contribute to their
clarification and to their resolution. It welcomes philosophical
discussions of substantive legal, social, and political problems, as
well as discussions of the more abstract questions to which they
give rise. It also intends to publish studies of the moral and
intellectual history of such problems. Philosophy and Public
Affairs fills the need for a journal in which philosophers with
different viewpoints and philosophically inclined writers from
various disciplines--including law, political science, economics, and
sociology--can bring their distinctive methods to bear on problems
that concern everyone.
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.
