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.
The Journal of Museum Education, a publication of the Museum Education Roundtable, is the premier publication promoting and reporting on theory, training, and practice in the museum education field. Organized into thematic issues, each issue consists of original, peer-reviewed papers focusing on a key topic of contemporary interest in the development, research, administration or practice of education programs in museums and other informal education institutions. The journal addresses an audience of museum practitioners, museum studies programs, scholars in cultural studies, and researchers and teachers of informal education and museum education.
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.
Coverage presently ends: 2010. JSTOR will resume a moving wall of 7 years in 2018.
