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.
Chicana/Latina Studies is an interdisciplinary, peer reviewed, flagship serial publication of a feminist Chicana/Latina and Native women's academic organization, Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social (MALCS, Women Active in Research and Social Change). MALCS is dedicated to building bridges between community and university settings, transforming higher education, and promoting new paradigms and methods. Originally published as Voces: A Journal of Chicana/Latina Studies, the name changed to Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social in 2003. As the publication of a diverse association that aims to provide space for those historically marginalized, the Journal is receptive to all scholarly methods and theoretical perspectives that examine, describe, analyze, or interpret the experiences of Chicanas/Latinas and Native women. The journal welcomes English or Spanish submissions of scholarship, commentary, reviews, and creative writing. It is published twice a year, in spring and fall.
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.
