J-14 is a monthly teenage magazine marketed at preteen and teenage girls around age 11-19. It is one of the earliest teen celebrity magazines.[2] The magazine was among the top children magazines in the 2012 list of Forbes.[2]


The first issue of the magazine was released in January 1999. It is published by Bauer Publishing, the United States division of the German firm Bauer Verlagsgruppe. The contents of these magazines include features like teen gossip, quizzes, fashion, posters, and information on celebrities that pertain to the readers. The name of the publication is a sound-alike abbreviation of its tagline "Just For Teens."


An annual survey in 2007 by Experian Simmons Research of Fort Lauderdale, Florida found that J-14 tied Nickelodeon Magazine among American girls 8–14 for familiarity, with nearly one in three girls in that age group surveyed saying they had read or looked at the magazine. Circulation was 217,183 in 2006.[3]
