Years Full Journal Title Abbrev.
1888, Mar. - 1912, Mar. (New ser., vol.1, no.1 - new ser., v.13, no.97)

A

Publications of the American Statistical Association

Full-text of 1888 (New ser., vol.1,) to 1912 ( v.13, no.97) is available at JSTOR.

According to the record in the Univ. Calif. cat., the "new series" appearing on the cover of each number is in reference to earlier publications of the Association.

The date when the title changed from Publications to Quarterly Publications has some curious problems associated with it. According to the record in the Univ. Calif. cat., the last issue with the title Publications was 1912, Mar. (new ser., v.13, no.97), and the first issue with the title Quarterly Publications was 1912, June (New ser., vol. 13, no. 98). The actual title-page information from the JSTOR archive indicates that the title Publications was used until Vol. 16 (nos. 121-128) for 1918-1919, and the title Quarterly Publication [note that the second word is singular, not plural] did not appear until Vol. 17 (nos. 129-136) for 1920-1921.
