Canadian Journal of African Studies / Revue Canadienne des Études Africaines
Description: Canadian Journal of African Studies is competitive with the best scholarly journals on Africa in the world. It publishes articles principally in the areas of anthropology, political economy, history, geography, and development of the continent. Many of the articles are interdisciplinary in approach, especially those which seek to assess the origins, nature, and success of development strategies. A continuing feature section called "Debates and Commentaries / Débats et commentaires" presents divergent viewpoints on current issues; these permit the reader to keep abreast of informed opinion on policy-relevant questions. The occasional research notes have permitted university students, recognized academics, and public policy makers to keep in touch with the latest writing, opinion, and research sources on African issues. A book review and review essay section completes each issue with pithy critiques of recent books and reports on the continent or individual regions or countries.
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
