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: Mathematics Magazine presents articles and notes on undergraduate mathematical topics in a lively expository style that appeals to students and faculty throughout the undergraduate years. The journal originally began in 1926 as a series of pamphlets to encourage membership in the Louisiana-Mississipi Section of the Mathematical Association of America, and soon evolved into the regional publication Mathematics News Letter. Beginning in 1935, the journal was published with the help of Louisiana State University and, as it began addressing larger issues in teaching math, was renamed National Mathematics Magazine. In 1947, the journal's title was shortened to Mathematics Magazine, and in 1960 it became an official publication of the Mathematical Association of America. Mathematics Magazine is published five times per year.
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.
