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.
Founded in 1932 in Berlin, the Zeitschrift für Kunstgeschichte has become a core document of German art history. Suspended after 1944 and resumed in 1949 the quarterly has been in publication ever since. Launched by the art historians Wilhelm Waetzoldt and Ernst Gall, editorial responsibility has later taken over by Margarethe Köhn, Georg Kauffmann and Reiner Haussherr. Its current editors are Andreas Beyer, Andreas Tönnesmann and Alexander Markschies. Editor in chief is Stephan E. Hauser. The editorial office is located in Basel (Switzerland), where it is incorporated into the Art History Dept. of the University of Basel. Today the Zeitschrift für Kunstgeschichte is a platform for art historians throughout the world, thus it is open to any periods, topics, and methods. Scholarly articles are published in German, English, French, and Italian.
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.
