The Bulletin of Symbolic Logic was established in 1995 by the
Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL) to provide a journal of high standards
that would be both accessible and of interest to as wide an audience as possible.
Its stated purpose is to keep the logic community informed quickly of important
developments in all parts of the discipline.
The Bulletin of Symbolic Logic primarily publishes two types
of papers: articles and communications. Articles present topics of broad
interest that should be accessible to a large audience. They can be purely
expository, survey, or historical articles, or they may contain, in addition,
new ideas or results or new approaches to old ones. Communications are announcements
of important new results and ideas. They are expected to include a description
of the new work, as well as enough history, background, and explanation to
make the significance of the work apparent to a wide audience.
Papers in The Bulletin may deal with any aspect of logic,
including mathematical or philosophical logic, logic in computer science
or linguistics, the history or philosophy of logic, or applications of logic
to other fields.
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
