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 yearbook Musica Disciplina is devoted to the scholarly exploration of early music. In keeping with the title of its first volume (1946), the Journal of Renaissance and Baroque Music, MD seeks to publish in its traditional area of focus studies on Medieval and Renaissance music, but it also invites submissions on music of the seventeenth century. The editor and editorial board encourage submissions of articles on any topic in this broad period. Both traditional and newer approaches are welcomed equally, including, but not limited to, aesthetics and criticism, analytical contributions, archival research, cultural and contextual studies, the history of theory, organology and iconography, performance practices, and source studies.
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.
