Magazine

A magazine is a container for ammunition, from the french word for "store", magasin.


By analogy with the above, a magazine is a periodical publication containing a variety of articles on various subjects. Magazines are typically published weekly, twice-monthly or monthly, and often have some colour-printed content and coated paper. "Journal" is sometimes used in reference to a magazine.

Many weekend newspapers now incorporate 'magazine sections' with a magazine-like format.
