Description: Sociological Forum, the official journal of the Eastern Sociological
Society, is a peer-review journal that emphasizes innovative articles developing
topics or areas in new ways or directions. While supporting the central interests
of sociology in social organization and change, the journal also publishes
integrative articles that link subfields of sociology or relate sociological
research to other disciplines, thus providing a larger focus on complex issues.
Building on the strength of specialization while stressing intellectual convergences,
this publication offers special opportunities for using the techniques and
concepts of one discipline to create new frontiers on others.
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
