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.
A scholarly journal devoted to Buddhism and Christianity and their historical
and contemporary interrelationships, Buddhist-Christian Studies presents
thoughtful articles, conference reports, and book reviews. It also includes
sections on comparative methodology and historical comparisons, as well as
ongoing discussions from two dialogue conferences: the Theological Encounter
with Buddhism, and the Japan Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies.
The Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies, the journal's sponsor, was
founded in 1987 to provide an ongoing organization for those committed to
study, reflection, interchange, and practice arising out of Buddhist-Christian
encounters. Every year, the Society also presents the Frederick J. Streng
Book Award for excellence in Buddhist-Christian studies. Membership in the
Society includes a subscription to the annual journal and semiannual newsletter.
The Society is headquartered at CSSR, Valparaiso University, Valparaiso,
IN 46383-6493, USA.
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.
