Project detailsEdit

This WikiProject aims primarily to provide Wikipedia with the following:

  • general information about magazines
  • information about specific magazine publications

The goals of this project are to identify magazine publications that do not yet have articles in Wikipedia (see WP:MCW/MIS in particular), and to discuss and suggest guidelines for writing magazine related-articles.

Magazines cited by WikipediaEdit

The project maintains a bot-generated list of magazines cited on Wikipedia using the |magazine= parameter of {{cite xxx}} templates. The list is organized both alphabetically and by popularity. Due to a lack of advanced filtering, the lists will include several academic journals, websites, and other things that aren't magazines. See WP:MCW for more details.

NotabilityEdit

See also: Wikipedia:Notability (media).

Notability is presumed for magazines that:

  1. have produced award winning work
  2. have served some sort of historic purpose or have a significant history
  3. are considered by reliable sources to be authoritative in their subject area
  4. are frequently cited by other reliable sources
  5. are significant publications in ethnic and other non-trivial niche markets

Publications that primarily carry advertising, and only have trivial content, may have relevant details merged to an article on their publisher (if notable).

For tips on writing a good article on a magazine, see our writing guide.
