Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the differences between newspapers and magazines?

The main differences between newspapers and magazines lie in their focus, scope, and form. Newspapers are usually daily publications that focus on news or current developments in all fields. They contain reports and very brief articles discussing these. Magazines, meanwhile, are published after longer durations of time and have a very specific focus. They cater to distinct interests and carry longer, in-depth pieces on developments and discussions in the area of their focus. While both newspapers and magazines have embraced digital formats, those that continue to print physical editions appear vastly different; newspapers are sheets of folded paper, while magazines take the form of slim booklets.
