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: The Journal of African History publishes articles and book reviews
ranging widely over the African past, from the late Stone Age to the present.
In recent years increasing prominence has been given to economic, cultural
and social history and several articles have explored themes which are also
of growing interest to historians of other regions such as: gender roles, demography,
health and hygiene, propaganda, legal ideology, labour histories, nationalism
and resistance, environmental history, the construction of ethnicity, slavery
and the slave trade, and photographs as historical sources. Contributions dealing
with pre-colonial historical relationships between Africa and the African diaspora
are especially welcome, as are historical approaches to the post-colonial period.
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.
