To use this template please add the following code to the top of the article.

Note: If you have no information for a certain parameter please just blank it rather than removing it so that other editors can see that it needs adding at a later stage

}}

If the magazine is defunct, include the finaldate and finalnumber parameters. If the magazine is still publishing, then these parameters should be omitted entirely:

| finaldate       = 
| finalnumber     = 

If a breakdown into paid, unpaid and total circulation figures is desired, use the following lines instead of the circulation parameter:

| paid_circulation   = 
| unpaid_circulation = 
| circulation_year   = 
| total_circulation  = 

The company parameter should list the publishing company. The publisher parameter should be the named person who publishes the magazine.

The previous_editor parameter should include earlier, notable, editors. In particular, the founding editor (if different from current editor), to a reasonable maximum number.

If image_file is a .djvu and a particular page is desired, then use the image_page parameter:

| image_page =

If other editing positions are required (e.g. Senior Editor or Associate Editor), use the additional editor fields show below.

| editor2         = 
| editor_title2   = 
| editor3         = 
| editor_title3   = 
| editor4         = 
| editor_title4   = 
| editor5         = 
| editor_title5   =
