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.
‘Atiqot has been published in print since 1955, first by the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums (IDAM), and since 1990 by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). Since 2010 it also appears on line.
The articles are not confined to a specific range of periods or topics, but to a geographical area—Israel—which has been influenced by almost every ancient culture that existed in the Levant. The journal thus presents comprehensive research on the region and its connections with neighboring countries. The publication is devoted to final reports, primarily of salvage excavations, as well as topical articles. Occasionally a volume is dedicated to a particular subject, period or site (e.g., prehistory, burial caves, Jerusalem).
The journal publishes articles in English or Hebrew; all Hebrew reports are accompanied by English summaries keyed to illustrations in the main text.
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.
