This is important. A magazine is not the best medium in every case; it is useful for a (bi-)weekly or monthly publication on a certain topic (science, politics, fashion). It is not often used as a shorter than monthly publication, it has a certain size restriction and it is expected to have only one copy. An Alternatives is newspapers, they are usually printed daily or weekly, have no size restrictions and has no topic restrictions. Another alternative is a news letter, these are good because they can easily be sent as an email or in print, the topic can be anything, although it is primarily used by certain organization to give news about themselves
