 JSTOR: 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.
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.
While most publishers continue the moving wall, ensuring their journals are preserved and accessible through the JSTOR archive, a few publishers have asked us to “fix” the moving wall (i.e., to cease adding new volumes to the archive) at the point when their own online issues begin.

Michael Douglas won an Oscar for perfectly embodying the Reagan-era credo that "greed is good." As a Donald Trump-like Wall Street raider aptly named Gordon Gecko (for his reptilian ability to attack corporate targets and swallow them whole), Douglas found a role tailor-made to his skill in portraying heartless men who've sacrificed humanity to power.
He's a slick, seductive role model for the young ambitious Wall Street broker played by Charlie Sheen, who falls into Gecko's sphere of influence and instantly succumbs to the allure of risky deals and generous payoffs.
Wall Street is a marvelous movie directed by Oliver Stone (JFK) and starring Michael Douglas (The War Of The Roses) in his only Oscar winning performance, Charlie Sheen (Scary Movie 3), Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), and Martin Sheen (Catch Me If You Can).
