Biweekly

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Biweekly may refer to an event that occurs twice weekly or once every two weeks.[1] There are 52 full weeks in a year of 12 months (ISO 8601 defines a year as containing 52 or 53 weeks), making for a possible 26 or 104 biweekly events in a year. This is a greater number than if such events were held twice a month, because most months have more than four weeks (28 days).

In the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, the term fortnightly is more commonly used.
