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 Roman Studies publishes papers in the full range
of the field which the Roman Society was established to promote, i.e. 'the
study of the history, archaeology, literature and art of Italy and the Roman
Empire, from the earliest times down to about A.D. 700'. The emphasis is on
historical themes, but there are also articles on literary, archaeological
and art historical topics, including issues of cultural and intellectual history
that cut across these categories. Papers are intended to make a fresh and significant
contribution to the understanding of the Roman world and to stimulate further
discussion. Articles primarily on the archaeology of Roman Britain are published
in the Society's sister journal, Britannia.
The usual month of publication is November. The contents list and abstracts
of the most recent volume are available on the Society's web-page, as are
the contents of the five preceding volumes.
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.
