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 the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes publishes new research, of a documentary and analytical character, in the field of cultural and intellectual history. The subject matter includes art and architecture, religion, science and literature as well as intellectual, political and social life, often with an emphasis on their relation to the civilisation of antiquity. The Journal was founded in 1937, as one of the first publishing projects of the Warburg Institute following its arrival in London; it was intended as a interdisciplinary forum, more extensive in scope and varied in content than the Vorträge previously published by the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg in Hamburg. Produced at the Warburg Institute and edited by members of staff from that Institute as well as from the Courtauld Institute of Art, it remains reliant on the extensive libraries and photographic collections which these institutions possess; it also depends on the collaboration of scholars from the two institutions, who, along with outside experts, participate in the review process. Volumes of the Journal are issued annually.
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.
