JSTOR is a journal article database with full-text access. A list of participating publishers and journals is available on the JSTOR website. JSTOR archives journals from the first year of publication up until a “moving wall” set by the publishers. The moving wall is a gap of up to 11 years between current and archived issues, and access to issues that fall within this window is restricted. The duration of the moving wall is fixed, meaning that a new year of archival content is added each January.
