The Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts
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.
Since 1986, The Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts has been dedicated to fostering new scholarship for the period 1875 to 1945 and parallels themes contained in the collection of The Wolfsonian. The 25th issue, released in May 2005, is devoted to the American hotel; its 10 essays explore the material, social, and cultural world of large American hotels and tell the story of how they evolved into some of the world's most significant and interesting buildings. Past issues of the award-winning journal have addressed other themes, including volumes that focused on architecture and design in Florida, Cuba, Russia/Soviet Union, Brazil, Yugoslavia and Argentina, as well as aspects of the collection such as New Deal murals and Arts and Crafts metal work, among others.
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.
