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.

A country is placed on the State Sponsor list when it has demonstrated to the United States government they frequently give support to terrorist organizations. The United States government automatically places four sanctions on these countries: a ban on arms-related exports and sales, controls over exports of dual-use items, prohibitions of economic aid and various financial and other restrictions (State Department, 2013).
Hizballah (Party of God), a Shia Muslim organization, was established in 1982 as a response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Hizballah has several different goals and is funded in many ways.
