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.

My family is from Rotterdam from where they emigrated in 1951 to New Zealand living first in Auckland and then in Wellington.
I was educated at Westlake High School and Victoria University of Wellington from where I graduated with an MA with Honours in English. From 1969 - 1972 I studied at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, graduating with a PhD in linguistics. I hold a DSc and the University Teaching Medal from the University of Canterbury where I am Professor Emeritus. I also commute from Sydney where I am an Honorary Professor at the University of Sydney
I've published four books of poetry and seven academic texts and monographs as well as articles, book chapters and reviews. I am on the editorial boards of three academic journals and the inaugural Managing Editor of the _Yearbook of Phraseology_.
I have been fortunate to have held two Fulbright Fellowships in the USA and been a Fellow of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
I play the euphonium (not well), enjoy gardening and chamber music, and being in other places (but not too other).
