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.
Welcome to Phylon, the peer-reviewed journal that W.E.B. Du Bois founded at Atlanta University in 1940. Phylon has moved from a quarterly to a semi-annual publication and each issue will be defined by a special topic of general interest to faculty in the humanities and social sciences. With each volume we will encourage joint authorship by academics from various disciplines so that not only is the theme of the article presented, but it will be discussed in a Du Bosian interdisciplinary fashion taking into account historical, political and socio-economic interpretations. We believe that it is time to recognize that many of us in nominally separate fields and disciplines are working on the same problem from slightly different angles. The full text version of Phylon is only available to users within Atlanta University Center. Individuals outside of the Atlanta University Center may contact may contact the editor-in-chief, Dr. Obie Clayton (firstname.lastname@example.org), for subscription access options.
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.
Content for this title is released as soon as the latest issues become available to JSTOR.
