Timeline of MJP Journals

The above timeline represents the 26 magazines and anthologies that currently make up the MJP’s collection of digitized periodicals. (We’ve not included on the timeline any of the 24 single issues that make up the MJP’s 1910 Collection.) This timeline offers a convenient way to see when an MJP journal began and ended, and where, in time, it overlaps with other journals in our collection. You can also use the timeline to access the MJP's collections of these journals.

The software we’ve used to produce this timeline comes from Simile Widgets. People interested in creating their own timelines using this open-source software can find instructions here. The MJP timeline consists of just two files: a JSON data file that feeds info about the journals into an html file that displays the timeline.
