Description:Shakespeare Quarterly was founded in 1950 by the Shakespeare Association of America. Housed and published by the Folger Shakespeare Library since 1972 and in association with George Washington University, SQ is the world's foremost journal focusing on all aspects of Shakespeare studies. Topics for essays and notes cover criticism of the plays and poems, theater history, Shakespeare pedagogy, the history of Shakespeare as an institution, and studies in editing, text, canon, and bibliography. "Shakespeare Performed," publishing review-essays on Royal Shakespeare Company and other significant stage and film productions around the world, is a regular feature. Each issue also includes book reviews on Shakespeare and related subjects. Volumes 1-31 include an Annotated Bibliography for the previous year. With volume 32 in 1982, the World Shakespeare Bibliography, compiled at Texas A & M University, became a separate issue and is not included in JSTOR archives.
Coverage: 1950-2012 (Vol. 1, No. 1 - Vol. 63, No. 4)
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.
