  • Journal Info The Philosophical Review Description: Edited by the faculty of the Sage School of Philosophy at Cornell University, The Philosophical Review has been in continuous publication since 1892. Volume I, edited by Jacob Gould Schurman (President of Cornell from 1892 to 1920), contained articles by William James and John Dewey. A "Prefatory Note" in the first issue expressed editorial policy that continues to rule: "the Review will combine an impartiality and catholicity of tone and spirit. It will not be the organ of any institution, of any sect, or of any must absolutely free organ, national and international, of general Philosophy." Coverage: 1892-2013 (Vol. 1, No. 1 - Vol. 122, No. 4) Moving Wall: 5 years (What is the moving wall?)

    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.
