Notability[edit]

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.
