African Affairs is published on behalf of the Royal African
Society. It publishes articles on recent political, social and economic developments
in sub-Saharan countries. Also included are historical studies that illuminate
current events in the continent.
Each issue of African Affairs contains a substantial section
of book reviews, with occasional review articles. There is also an invaluable
list of recently published books, and a listing of articles on Africa that
have appeared in non-Africanist journals.
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.
