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.
An annual compilation of themed essays, exhibition highlights, and Gallery news, the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin publishes original scholarship on works in the Gallery’s collection. The Gallery actively seeks out great works of art from ancient times to the present day and in every medium to enrich the collection for teaching and research, and since the late 1940s, almost every issue of the Bulletin has regularly included a full list of acquisitions made since the previous issue. Beginning with the 2010 edition of the Bulletin, these acquisition lists are published online on the Gallery’s website, at http://artgallery.yale.edu/pages/collection/newacquisitions/newacquisitions.php. Switching to a digital format for this portion of the annual Bulletin contributes to Yale University’s efforts to increase sustainability and conserve our natural resources.
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.
