The journal was first published as a bi-monthly publication, in the days before free electronic communication. Under the editorship of William Van Aken it was published on a bi-monthly basis from Oct 1965 until 1986. In the summer of 1986 it became a quarterly publication under the new editor, Christine Norman. Since 2012, the Executive Director has served as the editor.
