Description: Founded in 1929 by March Bloch and Lucien Febvre, Annales highlights, beyond its prestigious heritage, the most innovative advances in historical research. The exploration of new domains of research and comparative history, covering a range of cultures and epistemological reflections by contributions from prestigious scholars and young historians alike, defines the spirit of Annales, a noted history journal whose prominence is internationally recognized. Outside of the history discipline, Annales also plays an important role in the social sciences, serving as a platform for reasoned dialogue between the various human sciences. The journal largely focuses on the examination of recent discoveries in the sciences in the form of reports (200 per year) and deep analyses of the most important works.
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.
