Nordic Irish Studies
The aims of Nordic Irish Studies are to reflect the research activities of CISA, DUCIS and NISN and to publish articles on Irish history, politics, society, culture and literature. NIS is open to unsolicited articles, but potential contributors should send their proposal in the form of an abstract or synopsis to one of the editors in advance.
Coverage: 2002-2016 (Vol. 1 - Vol. 15, No. 2)
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.

Introduction to Discourse Studies follows on Jan Renkema s successful Discourse Studies: An Introductory Textbook (1993), published in four languages. This new book deals with even more key concepts in discourse studies and approaches major issues in this field from the Anglo-American and European as well as the Australian traditions. It provides a scientific toolkit for future courses on discourse studies and serves as a stepping stone to the independent study of professional literature.Introduction to Discourse Studies is the result of more than twenty-five years of experience gained in doing research and teaching students, professionals and academics at various universities. The book is organized in fifteen comprehensive chapters, each subdivided in modular sections that can be studied separately. It includes
400 references, from the most-cited contemporary publications to influential classic works;
500 index entries covering frequently used concepts in the field;
more than 100 thought-provoking questions, all elaborately answered, which are ideal for teacher-supported self-education;
nearly 100 assignments that provide ample material for teachers to focus on specific topics of their own preference in their lectures.
Jan Renkema is a member of the Department of Communication and Information Sciences at Tilburg University, The Netherlands. He is also editor of Discourse, of Course (2009) and author of The Texture of Discourse (2009). In 2009, a Chinese edition of Introduction to Discourse Studies was published by Shanghai Foreign Language Education Press.
