To my knowlege, citation information of former articles does not change when a journal starts publishing under a new name. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

I would think not. If the article was published under Journal X ,it's citation would reflect that. Anybody looking for it under the new name of Y's Journal wouldn't be able to find it easily. I know someone who may be able to answer. I'll ask him and get back. PrometheusX303 18:38, 5 April 2006 (GMT)
The publications names were not correct anyway. Until this matter is resolved, I have put in the correct (at time of publication) name. Philip J. Rayment 02:57, 6 April 2006 (GMT)
I asked JP Holding (who has a masters in library science) about it. This is his reply:
Technically there's no problem with putting in the new title; it's more usual to add in "formerly (old title)" but then again, a library will group them all together anyway so it won't be a problem with anyone who'd look for it. You can find it being done various ways according to the whim of the cataloger. That's why I didn't become one of those.  :-)

I vote on using "formerly (old title)", so that our reader can readily find the info online as well as in print. PrometheusX303 12:32, 6 April 2006 (GMT)
