Description: Third World Quarterly (TWQ) is the leading journal of scholarship
and policy in the field of international studies. For two and a half decades,
it has set the agenda on development discourses of the global debate. As the
most influential academic journal covering the emerging worlds, TWQ is
at the forefront of analysis and commentary on fundamental issues of global concern.
TWQ looks beyond strict "development studies," providing an
alternative and over-arching reflective analysis of micro-economic and grassroot
efforts of development practitioners and planners. It furnishes expert and
interdisciplinary insight into crucial issues before they impinge upon media
attention, as well as coverage of the very latest publications in its comprehensive
book review section.
TWQ acts as an almanac linking the academic terrains of the
various contemporary area studies - African, Asian, Latin American and Middle
Eastern - in an interdisciplinary manner with the publication of informative,
innovative and investigative articles.
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.
