The journal Oriente Moderno was established in 1921 by Carlo Alfonso Nallino who was its director until his death in 1939. Some of the most prominent Italian scholars on the Muslim world have succeeded him: Ettore Rossi (who later on gave his books and documents to the Institute) and Paolo Minganti. The Journal has been directed by Prof. Claudio Lo Jacono since 1995.
The journal is dedicated to the study of Muslim and Arab world, but with particular and specific attention to modern and contemporary times. For sake of this, the journal has been publishing during his ninety years of history a wide range of contributions: 1) scientific articles regarding political, social, literary, artistic and cultural life in Near and Middle east; 2) official documents in translation; 3) photographic and other documentation; 4) news and reviews of the main Italoian and International specialist literature on the Near and Middle East. Further, for a number of decades, Oriente Moderno has published a review of main newspaper articles from all Arab nations, giving a unique documentation to the community of scholars.
Oriente Moderno was born as a monthly journal but during some years was published also in semestral issues. Since 1996, with a new graphic outlook and dimensions, it was published 2-3 times a year and the series Quaderni di Oriente Moderno was added to the general series. In the last years the journals appears with two yearly issues: one collecting articles and reviews and one monographic issue edited by a scholar and collecting various contributes on a specific topic

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.
