In my view this publisher, Haworth Press (and not only that firm),
makes a habit of publishing four issues per volume on a so-called
"quarterly" basis, but the volumes are being stretched over more
than one year. So the meaning of "quarterly" in the English language
is not any more exclusively in use for something happening four times
a year, but the meaning is also extended to four issues per volume,
thanks to the world of publishers.
