Moving-wall’s principle


To preserve the financial balance of the journals, the fulltext of most recent articles is generally not available.

The journals whose archives are on this server have accepted the principle of a moving wall. This is a time interval between the publication of a volume (in paper or electronic form, delivered to subscribers) and the availability of the fulltext on the Numdam server.

For instance, the value set for the Bulletin de la Société mathématique de France being five years, the references of all the published articles are currently available. But the fulltext is available for download only if the article was published at least 5 full years before today.
