A magazine is a print publication which is edited from periodic way (usually, weekly or monthly). Like the daily , magazines are part of the graphic media, although they can also have their digital version or have been born directly in Internet .
It is like that. With the rise of new technologies and the Internet, two events have taken place in the field of journals. Thus, on the one hand, we have encountered the birth and development of web magazines that are not made on paper but that their readers can only read them on the Web. And on the other hand, there has been a great bet on the part of the magazines that come out of the press that have made the decision to also have their version on the Internet.
In the latter case, we could highlight, for example, important journals within the communicative landscape of Spain such as “Hola”, a publication called “del Corazón” which also has versions in other countries.
The origin of the magazines goes back a year 1663 , when it began to be edited “Erbauliche Monaths-Unterredungen” (“Edifying monthly discussions” ) in Germany . In the following years, France , Italy and England They also started editing different types of magazines.
Like newspapers, magazines earn income from the sale of copies (that is, what the reader pays to buy the publication), subscriptions and advertisements.
Currently, there are magazines about a wide variety of topics and aimed at different types of audiences. There are magazines for children, women, for men, of general interest, shows, sports, political analysis, economic and humorous, among others.
However, we cannot ignore the fact that magazines are normally classified into four broad categories. Specifically, four groups are established, which are scientific, specialized, entertainment and informational.
As an example of a scientific journal we have the publication "Iberoamerican Magazine of Mycology" while as a specialist we have "Solo Moto" which, as its name suggests, focuses on the world of motorcycling. Among the entertainment magazines we have those of the heart as would be the case of "Ten Minutes" and finally as an informational magazine we would highlight "Time".
On the other hand, the magazine is a theatrical genre It combines music, dance and humor scenes. They usually include political or current criticism, and are characterized by the presence of women with little clothing. The female figures of the magazine are known as vedettes .
Among the most important vedettes in the world of this musical and theatrical genre, at the same time, in Spain we could highlight figures such as Celia Gámez, Esperanza Roy, Norma Duval or Lina Morgan.
Finally, it should be noted that the expression to review It refers to the exercise of an inspection function or to the detailed examination of a number of things: "We will review the events that led to the resignation of the minister", “I have to go through the magazine to find where is the fault that has cost us thousands of dollars”.
