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: Edited by the faculty of the Sage School of Philosophy at Cornell
University, The Philosophical Review has been in continuous
publication since 1892. Volume I, edited by Jacob Gould Schurman
(President of Cornell from 1892 to 1920), contained articles by William
James and John Dewey. A "Prefatory Note" in the first issue expressed
editorial policy that continues to rule: "the Review will combine an
impartiality and catholicity of tone and spirit. It will not be the organ
of any institution, of any sect, or of any interest...it must be...an
absolutely free organ, national and international, of general Philosophy."
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.
