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: Economic and commercial developments in Arab countries continue to attract attention. Courts in the non-Islamic world increasingly need to decide issues involving Arab laws and Islamic law generally. This interest in Arab countries, not only internally but externally as well, enhances the need for a topical journal on Arab law.
The leading English-language legal publication in its field, Arab Law Quarterly covers all aspects of Arab laws, both Shari'a and secular. It provides authoritative articles on the laws and legal developments throughout the twenty countries of the Arab world, notes on recent legislation and case law, guidelines on future changes, and reviews of the latest literature in the field.
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.
