What's this effect called?

Anyone know what this effect is called? When it scrolls from "page to page" automatically instead of scrolling? I imagine its javascript or jquery, and I've seen it on quiteba few sites, but just can't find the name for it. http://www.badassembly.com

Actually the example isn't considered parallax scrolling. I would just consider it a vertical content slider that locks into position using JavaScript.
