A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.
Description: Founded in 1888 by Rene Cagnat, L'Année Epigraphique, which has been under the direction of Mireille Corbier since February 1992, is both a research tool and a work of reference. Each year, the journal takes an inventory of the new Greek and Latin inscriptions relative to the Roman world that have been published in the past two and a half years. The journal also offers commentary on inscriptions already published and on primary sources based on epigraphic documentation.
The editorial style of L'Année Epigraphique is a work of original research, in which the writers, who have been recruited for their qualifications and for their complementary specializations, have invested an accumulated knowledge in epigraphy and in the history of ancient societies.
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.
