Founded in 1936 under the auspices of the Harvard-Yenching Institute, the Harvard
Journal of Asiatic Studies (HJAS) has without interruption pursued its mission
to disseminate original, outstanding research and book reviews on the humanities
in Asia, focusing at present on the areas of China, Japan, Korea, and Inner
Asia. As scholarship has evolved, so has this Journal, but always while holding
constant its commitment to serve authors and readers alike through the careful
selection and editing of its contents.
In evaluating manuscripts, the Editor of HJAS is guided by its Editorial
Board and acts on the advice of referees worldwide. The Harvard Journal of
Asiatic Studies is a semi-annual publication, appearing in June and December
and has institutional and individual subscribers in roughly forty 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
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.
