Question about a magazine's extra publications

Hi Project Magazine people, could someone answer this question for me? When National Lampoon (magazine) was in its heyday in the 70s, about 4 times a year they would put out various special publications that were also sold on newsstands, but that were not actually that month's issue of the magazine, they were separate additional things. Quite often these were large-format paperback books, such as "National Lampoon Gentleman's Bathroom Companion" in 1975. Does anyone know what you would call these publications? I am assuming there is a proper term for them... Do you call them special issues or what, because they were in addition to the regular issues. Many thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 15:27, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

I have added this article to the project. I have my doubts about whether it is anything more than an attempt to promote a startup attempt but I am not familiar with notability requirements for such articles so maybe someone here can have a look. Looks like most google hits are unrelated. --KenWalker | Talk 14:49, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Stub sorting, you can help!

On a whim, I started my stub-sorting career with the Magazines. When I started, the "Category:Cultural magazine stubs" and "Category:Magazine stubs" categories where both oversized and were barely distinguishable in the types of articles they contained. I've now created a number of new categories, and am completing sorting these two main categories out into my opinion of appropriate categories.

I would welcome help in a number of areas.

  1. Feel free to review the stub categories and make sure that magazines are placed in appropriate categories. (Note: please follow the stub sorting guidelines before creating any new stub categories) Please move any mis-sorted articles to a new appropriate category. Avoid the {{mag-stub}} and {{culture-mag-stub}} when possible, as these are non-defining categories. (feel free to review my remarks on the talk page for the cultural magazine stubs)
  2. The Category:Academic journal stubs could use some sorting. Anyone well versed in academia would be helpful here.
  3. And of course, these are stubs. Many of these may be able to be moved up the class ladder. I've included a number of articles that were either marked stub or unassessed. After review, if someone determines an article is deserving of start-class or higher, then reclass the article, and remove the stub tags. Also, feel free to improve any of these articles so the stub tags can be removed.

Cats by country

Does anyone know whether there's been a consensus regarding how magazines are categorized by country if the magazine publishes international editions? Some such magazine articles are categorized only in its primary/initial country of publication while other (and fewer) articles are categorized with each "by country" cat that applies based on having international editions. Either way has merits to me. Any thoughts?  Mbinebri  talk ← 18:54, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Categorizing question

I don't know of any such guideline, but my opinion would be to categorize it is as both (as it currently is), since it was at one time or another both. Cheers, Arbitrarily0 (talk) 13:50, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine

The National Geographic Magazine page could be improved by a discussion of "Your Shot". This photography competition is based on the National Geographic website and it has a large, international following. Every month, the winners of the competition are published in the National Geographic magazine. One of these winners was the notorious Crasher Squirrel. Another winner was spotted by the band Weezer, who used the image for the Raditude album cover. It was also the focus for a debate on digital manipulation, when National Geographic was tricked into printing a doctored image after it won the contest (here). Your Shot is a significant photo contest, and as such it deserves a mention. --Ofe13999 (talk) 11:04, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Magazine articles have been selected for the popflock.com resource 0.8 release

Version 0.8 is a collection of popflock.com resource articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Magazine articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Sunday, November 14th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of November, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of popflock.com resource worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

If you have already provided feedback, we deeply appreciate it. For the popflock.com resource 1.0 editorial team, SelectionBot 16:34, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

How to organize content about magazines

I started Magazines in Houston to chronicle all of the small/minor magazines published in Houston that are featured in secondary reliable sources.

I now have a lot of information about a series of neighborhood magazines which later were published under the single unifying masthead "Houston City Life." The magazines were started by one company, but were transferred to another company. Should I start two articles each, one about each company, and redirect "Houston City Life" to Media Link? Or should I start an article on "Houston City Life" and redirect "Media Ink" to "Houston City Life"? (I am not aware of Media Ink publishing other magazines, but the Creneau company published other magazines that were not related to "Houston City Life")

Chiropractic Economics

As the editor of this publication, I've reviewed the entry for Chiropractic Economics magazine and it seems to be in good order. All details listed are correct and validated with neutral, unbiased (i.e., non-internal) references and links.

I'd like to get the "problematic" label removed from this entry. If anyone can assist me in resolving this issue, I'd be highly grateful.

Regarding the "questionable" activity regarding links, I believe the Webmaster made some edits, but not for SEO purposes directly.

List of past subjects/articles covered in a magazine

Hi. I'm not a regular participant in this WikiProject, so I wonder if more experienced editors can have a look at the Tokyo Journal article, which I have been involved in editing. I'm particularly curious as to whether it is normal practice to include an ever-increasing list of all the past topics and subjects covered in a particular magazine, as is the case in the "Features" section of this article. Thanks for any comments or advice. --DAJF (talk) 08:47, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi, I've had a go at it. It is indeed not normal to include such sections (see our magazine article writing guide). Such list basically constitute unsourced OR and SYNTH. (Although editors often argue that the source for this is the tables of content; even when accepting that argument, there remains the fact that such lists reflect what particular editors find important about the magazine's content, which still is OR/SYNTH). As a rule of thumb, like any info in articles on any other subject, information on a specific article or contributor should only be included if there exist reliable sources independent of the magazine that cover such contributions or subject lists. Hope this helps. --Randykitty (talk) 12:27, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for having a look at the article and cleaning it up to bring it in line with the manual of style guidelines. Thanks also for providing a link to the guidelines about adding too much puff about past contents.

Leaflet For Wikiproject Magazines At Wikimania 2014

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

o Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

o Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

o Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

o Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

o Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen's Collaborative, The Signpost

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on popflock.com resource struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm seeking consensus on whether or not this image violated NFCC 3,5 & 8. Thanks ! Kosh Vorlon    20:02, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Please note that the image was restored along with the addition of corresponding text in the article and further explaination on the talk page of the need for a color image so as not to mislead the reader into believing this is a black-and-white art magazine as might be inferred from the more famous image in the infobox.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:22, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Intereconomics

Dear all,

I have noticed that you have decide to classify Intereconomics as a maganize. But as stated in Springer (the publisher), it is a journal: http://www.springer.com/economics/policy/journal/10272?countryChanged=true

And if you see the classification in here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/help/research-assistance/format-type/scholarly-journals you will see that it is not necessary that a journal is peer-reviewed to be a journal (for example: "The majority of scholarly journals go through the peer-review process, although there are some that are scholarly and non-peer reviewed, such as Journal of financial econometrics."(I am guessing that that is the reason why you changed from journal to magazine. If it is because something else please tell me).

Here you can also see the difference between a peer-reviewed journal and a journal that is not peer-reviewed: http://guides.library.cornell.edu/c.php?g=31867&p=201759

Thank you for your time.

Question about parameter

Should the date for in {{Infobox magazine}} be the date that is printed on the cover of the magazine, issue date, or the date which the magazine was released for sale? --Farix (t | c) 12:56, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

I think it should be the issue date, usually the masthead date. The date the magazine was released for sale is not always easy to tell, and although it can be quite different from the issue date that's something that can be explained in the body of the article. The fact that the two don't correspond is something many readers won't know, so it would be confusing to use release date. Where the cover and the masthead disagree, it's a little harder to say, but usually this means that the issue was delayed so the cover was printed (or overprinted) with a later date. In those cases I'd go with whatever the sources index the issue as. That's rare for a first issue, though; usually it happens in the middle of a run when a magazine is experiencing difficulties of some kind. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 14:31, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
So let's use Weekly Sh?nen Jump as an example. If the date on the first cover says August 1, then that is the date that should be listed in instead of the July 2, 1968 date that a source in the article? I'll also point out the the Media Arts Database (MADb), published by Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs, only gives the issues dates for everything published before the October 18, 2009 issue.[1][2] The reason for this clarification is that I know I'm going to encounter resistance as I update manga magazine articles to reflect those cover dates and the MADb, however, the template's documentation doesn't make it clear which dates to use. --Farix (t | c) 17:44, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't read Japanese, but Google Translate doesn't seem to give the 2 July date, unless I'm missing it. However, per WP:TRUTH, if that source says the cover date was 2 July 1968 then we have to use that unless we have a better source. If you have a copy of the first issue, and the cover date is clearly 1 August, then I would use that; this is one of the rare cases that a primary source trumps a secondary source. In situations like that, when a secondary source is clearly wrong, if the source is something a reader might consult (such as a reference work) then I sometimes add a footnote explaining the conflict and giving the basis for choosing one source over another. See note 2 in Startling Stories for an example. If multiple reliable sources all agree on the 2 July date I think you would have to explain the discrepancy to the reader.

Every month, Community Tech bot will post at popflock.com Resource: WikiProject Magazines/Archive 3/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Magazines.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Magazines, and what articles may be deserving of more attention.

Proposal - Roads & Kingdoms

I recently posted an article request for Roads & Kingdoms, a New York-based online publication covering food, travel, and politics, founded in 2012. I'm currently an intern with Roads & Kingdoms, and I've carefully studied Wikipedia's policies on disclosing conflicts of interest. I will not make any direct contributions on articles related to the publication, and I am not paid for my contributions.

I wanted to make a post here in WikiProject Magazines, as I believe Roads & Kingdoms meets the notability criteria outlined here for magazines: It received the James Beard Foundation's Publication of the Year Award in 2017, and Anthony Bourdain was the publication's sole investor and editor-at-large.[3] The company also produces online content for CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown television series.[4]

The publication has received substantial coverage by The Wall Street Journal, American Journalism Review, Inc., and Vox Media's Eater. ([5]; [6]; [7]; [8]) Any feedback on whether Roads & Kingdoms meets notability requirements is welcome, and I would be happy to work with editors on a draft of the article.

Nargis magazine

Was wondering if anyone from this WikiProject might be able to take a look at and assess Nargis magazine.

Source for publication years?

Hi - I am contemplating creating an article for Basketball Digest magazine and am wondering if anyone knows of a source for magazine publication dates? I cannot determine when the magazine ceased publication (the first issue was November, 1973). There may be other magazines I'd like to work on, so if anyone has a good general resource for publication dates I'd be interested to know. Thanks. Rikster2 (talk) 14:19, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

I have Frank Luther Mott's A History of American Magazines, which is useful up to 1930. After that date I don't know of a general resource. Science fiction magazines are well covered by the ISFDB, and I can probably dig up resources for non-sf pulp magazines through about the mid-1950s. You could try to find libraries holding copies and see what their holdings are, though you couldn't be sure the listings were completed. Before about 1978 you can also find copyright renewals which will at least give you listings of some of the issues. Another approach is to search ebay for "basketball digest" (including the quotes); you can see the individual issues for sale that way and sometimes it's pretty easy to work out what issues appeared in a year. That's not an RS for our purposes, but you can cite the individual issues as sources for their own existence.
Not what you were asking, but you might find the issue grids I use for magazine articles useful to display the publication history; see Venture Science Fiction for an example, and Planet Stories for a more complicated one. For long tables I usually start them collapsed; see Analog Science Fiction and Fact for an example. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 14:44, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
