What is JSTOR? 

In the broadest sense, JSTOR's mission is to help the scholarly community take advantage of advances in information technologies. In pursuing this mission, JSTOR has adopted a system-wide perspective, taking into account the sometimes conflicting needs of libraries, publishers, and scholars. JSTOR's goals include, among other things, building a reliable and comprehensive archive of important scholarly journal literature and dramatically improving access to these journals.

Through the moving wall, JSTOR seeks to avoid jeopardizing publishers' subscriptions and revenue opportunities from current and recent material, while also enabling libraries and researchers to rely on JSTOR as a trusted archive, providing both preservation and access for journals after a reasonable period of time. This period is specified by publishers in their license agreements with JSTOR, and generally ranges from three to five years. In calculating the moving wall, the current, incomplete year is not counted.
