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.
International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health
Description: International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health (formerly International Family Planning Perspectives) provides the latest peer-reviewed research on sexual and reproductive health in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia. This quarterly focuses on contraception; fertility; sexual behavior; adolescent pregnancy; abortion; family planning policies and programs; sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV; and maternal and child health. Staff-written summaries of research published in journals in related fields help readers keep up with new developments in the field, while special reports and commentary and viewpoint pieces inspire new approaches to common problems. All research articles include abstracts in Spanish and French as well as English. Each year, articles chosen from the most recent volume for their special interest to readers in Latin America and francophone Africa are translated into the appropriate language and compiled into special issues, which are widely circulated in those regions.
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.
