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 Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce published Transactions annually from 1783 until 1850-51. The Transactions were printed as a means to disseminate information about the work of the Society, in particular the offering and bestowing of awards and they include descriptions of the inventions and correspondence submitted in support of claims for awards.
Established in 1852 The Journal was also designed to record the work of the Society; it contained the formal proceedings of the Society, the notices, the appointment of various committees and their areas of interest. The ‘Royal’ prefix was added in 1908, so Journal’s prior to this are attributed to ‘The Society of Arts’. The Journal was distributed to ‘Members’, prior to 1914 and ‘Fellows’ post 1914, as the term 'Fellow' wasn't introduced until 1914. The Journal can be purchased by non-affiliates and is a useful resource for finding out about the past work and attitudes of the Society.
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.
