- Periodical publication
A periodical publication, or just periodical, is a published work that appears in a new edition on a regular schedule. The most familiar examples are the
newspaper, often published daily, or weekly; or the magazine, typically published weekly, monthly or as a quarterly. Other examples would be a newsletter, a literary journalor learned journal, or a yearbook.
These examples all are related to the idea of an indefinitely continuing cycle of production and publication: newspapers plan to continue publishing, not to stop after a predetermined number of editions. A novel, in contrast, might be published in monthly parts, a method revived after the success of "
The Pickwick Papers" by Charles Dickens. [ [http://www.bl.uk/collections/early/victorian/pu_novel.html Images of the Victorian book: Part publishing ] ] This approach is called part-publication, particularly when each part is from a whole work, or a serial, for example in comic books or " manga". It flourished in the middle of the nineteenth century, for example with Abraham John Valpy's "Delphin Classics", and was not restricted to fiction. [ Simon Eliot, Jonathan Rose, "A Companion to the History of the Book" (2007), p. 297.]
The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is to periodical publications what the
ISBNis to books: a standardized reference number.
