Idun was a Swedish magazine founded by Frithiof Hellberg and named after the goddess Idun, who appears with her basket of apples on its masthead. It was published in 1887-1963. The paper focused on literature and gender equality.

It merged with Vecko-Journalen in 1963. The merged magazine was published weekly under the double-barrelled name Idun-Veckojournalen. In 1980, falling circulation figures forced it to a monthly cycle, and it was renamed Månadsjournalen ("Monthly Record"). It ceased publication in 2002.
