Moving Wall: 2 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.

A number of works provide general overviews of the main issues in the sociology of mental health and illness. Aneshensel and Phelan 1999, an edited handbook, is one of the first comprehensive overviews of the sociological literature on mental health, which is very useful for graduate students. The main premise is that mental disorder is not equally dispersed throughout society, but occurs more often within socially disadvantaged groups. Scheid and Brown 2010 provides overviews and updates our knowledge about the relationship between society and mental illness, which is also ideal for graduate students. For undergraduate classes on the sociology of mental illness, several excellent textbooks have been popular. For example, Cockerham 2011 has concise chapters that introduce students to the influence of social factors on mental illness, the utilization of mental health treatment, treatment options, and both legal and policy issues. Gallagher 2002 offers chapters that briefly highlight historical and environmental perspectives on different types of mental illnesses. Rogers and Pilgrim 2010, an undergraduate textbook, draws upon various social theories to understand mental illness and provides a critical perspective of the mental health profession. Tausig, et al. 2003, designed for undergraduate students, explores the different social antecedents of mental illness and the societal response at different points in history. McLeod and Wright 2009 offers a collection of key research articles to guide graduate and undergraduate students through the controversies in this field. Finally, Avison, et al. 2007 offers one of the best selections of chapters designed to reflect on the past, present, and possible future of the sociology of mental health and illness.
