Zeitschrift für Personalforschung / German Journal of Research in Human Resource Management
Description: Founded in 1987 by a group of prominent German professors, the journal is one of the oldest publications for personnel research worldwide, and is the only journal in its field outside of the United States and Great Britain listed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI). Historically, the journal sought to offer a forum for personnel research scientists from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. However, it has expanded internationally in more recent times by increasing its number of English articles. Zeitschrift für Personalforschung is a scientific journal that publishes qualitative and quantitative research as well as conceptual and theoretical essays that promise new insights on the current state of knowledge.
Coverage: 1987-2015 (1. Jahrg., H. 1 - Jahrg. 29, H. 3/4)
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.
Coverage presently ends: 2015. JSTOR will resume a moving wall of 3 years in 2021.
