Irish Studies in International Affairs
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: Irish Studies in International Affairs has been published since
1977 as the leading Irish-based journal in the discipline, with an increasing
international reputation and circulation. Each issue includes invited contributions
drawing on presentations to the previous year's RIA Committee for International
Affairs conference; original articles submitted around the theme of the conference
or related to Irish foreign policy defined in its widest sense; and annual reviews
of Irish diplomacy and Ireland's official development assistance programme.
The journal's editorial approach is not constrained by any particular methodological
or theoretical framework, and articles on a wide range of issues are welcome.
Past themed issues include Ireland's membership of the UN; the 'War on Terrorism';
and the rise of Asia in international affairs.
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.
