Description: Founded in 1920 as a focus of Catholic Christian reflection on current events, New Blackfriars publishes articles and book reviews of general interest, with an emphasis on theology, philosophy and cultural studies.
Theology, for New Blackfriars is ecumenical. The journal welcomes contributions in moral and practical theology, with an emphasis on matters of social justice. As regards philosophy, New Blackfriars is as open to the Continental hermeneutic tradition as to the analytic approach. While the thought of Thomas Aquinas will always remain the touchstone of serious intellectual engagement with questions of Christian faith and doctrine, New Blackfriars does not represent any particular version of Thomism. The journal welcomes submissions by new authors, trying out their ideas in print for the first time; but is just as happy to consider articles by well established writers.
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.
