Description: Excavations in the civic and cultural center of classical Athens began in 1931
and have continued almost without interruption to the present day. The first Athenian
Agora volume presenting "Results of Excavations Conducted by the American
School of Classical Studies at Athens" appeared in 1953 and, as scholars complete
their research, further titles continue to be published. Each volume covers a
particular chronological period, set of buildings, or class of material culture.
The series includes studies of lamps, sculpture, coins, inscriptions, and pottery.
Because most of these ancient finds can be dated stratigraphically, these typological
catalogues are invaluable reference works for archaeologists around the Mediterranean.
Volumes in The Athenian Agora series appear irregularly, but
there is usually at least one published every year. Each volume is peer-reviewed,
edited, and produced to the highest standards.
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.
