Description: Ethnohistory emphasizes the joint use of documentary materials and
ethnographic or archaeological data, as well as the combination of historical
and anthropological approaches, in the study of social and cultural processes
and history. The journal has established a strong reputation for its studies
of the history of native peoples in the Americas and in recent years has expanded
its focus to cultures and societies throughout the world.
Ethnohistory publishes articles, review essays, and book reviews
by scholars in anthropology, history, archaeology, linguistics, literature
and art history, geography, and other disciplines and is read by historians
and anthropologists alike.
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.
