Description: The Journal of Vegetation Science publishes papers on all aspects
of vegetation science, with particular emphasis on papers that develop new
concepts or methods, test theory, identify general patterns, or that otherwise
are likely to interest a broad readership.
Papers may focus on any aspect of vegetation science including theory,
methodology, spatial patterns (including plant geography and landscape ecology),
temporal changes (including palaeoecology and demography), processes (including
ecophysiology), and description of ecological communities (by phytosociological
or other methods), provided the focus is on increasing our understanding
of plant communities. Papers with a more applied focus should be directed
to our sister journal, Applied Vegetation Science.
The Journal of Vegetation Science accepts original papers
(including shorter ones), reviews, forum contributions and reports. It commissions
reviews of selected books.
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.
