Imago Mundi

Imago Mundi:
Contents of previous volumes

Peter van der Krogt has created a full contents list for Imago Mundi, covering all past and current issues. This will include future issues as they are published. See his listings arranged, respectively, by Volume contents and alphabetically by the Authors of articles.

An index by Piero Falchetta, from the beginning until 2009, in searchable pdf format, includes other journal elements as well (obituaries, conference reports, notices, etc.).

Since 2004, the contents of the first 54 volumes (1935-2002) have been available, in a fully searchable form, on the JSTOR website, in the section Arts & Sciences VII. This is a subscription service, accessible through relevant university and research libraries. However, current private subscribers are provided with free JSTOR access to vols 1-54. Back issues in print form are available from Periodicals Service Company and Schmidt Periodicals GmbH.

The contents pages (and latterly Abstracts) of the following remain available on this site:

Volume 45 (1993)
Volume 46 (1994)
Volume 47 (1995)
Volume 48 (1996) including Abstracts
Volume 49 (1997) including Abstracts
Volume 50 (1998) including Abstracts
Volume 51 (1999) including Abstracts
Volume 52 (2000) including Abstracts
Volume 53 (2001) including trilingual Abstracts
Volume 54 (2002) including Abstracts in four languages

Isues from 2003 (vol. 55 onwards) are available to subscribers via the Routledge/Taylor & Francis (Informa) site.
