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.
Quaderni di Studi Arabi was founded by professor and academics of the University of Venice in 1983 with a special issue in honour of the doyen of Italian Arabic studies, Francesco Gabrieli. Its main field of study was and is the Arab civilization in its historical and cultural dimensions. A New Series of the Quaderni di Studi Arabi, published by the Istituto per l’Oriente C.A. Nallino in Rome, started in 2006 and consists in yearly issues that include a monographic section by a major specialist, a more general section, and a final section of short notices and reviews. Among the topics that have been already discussed and those that are planned for the coming issues there are: folk poetry, locations and the imaginary in Arabic literature, historical methodology, poetry by knights and bandits, medieval Arabic encyclopaedias, Arabic theatre, Moslem Sicily, and archaeology in the Arab countries. This journal has an international scientific committee and publishes articles in the major European languages, taking also into account iconographic documents.
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.
