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.
Construction History, the journal of the Construction History Society, is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal which is published annually. It is the leading international journal in its field, and enjoys a high reputation in the diversity, breadth and detail of its coverage. The journal covers all aspects of construction history and recent papers have ranged from buildings in early China to construction processes in the modern USA, and from nineteenth century British bridge building to the use of concrete in India and Mexico. The scope embraces both technical and non-technical aspects of construction history. Among technical issues covered in Construction History are construction materials and components, buildings, infrastructure, building form, construction processes and plant. Non-technical aspects of construction include funding, organisations, company history, labour, education and historical sources. The journal does not include papers about the refurbishment of existing buildings or engineering structures. Each volume of around 150 pages contains up to six or seven generously illustrated papers by authoritative writers. Each volume also contains informative abstracts of papers in periodicals and other literature. Future volumes will also include a list of recent book titles.
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.
