Browsing Magazines Top

If you wish to find Magazines of a certain type, we've made it easy by dividing them into 'categories'. To browse magazines within a category, simply use the menu bar to the left where you will find a list of available category types. Click on any of the headings to explore available sub-categories and the directory of matching Magazines.

Categories may also be included in your search request to refine your results. (See under 'Searching Magazines')

Searching Magazines Back to TopTop
Below you will find some explanations for the search fields available in the magazine search.
Publication Name:

if you know the name of the publication you require information about, simply type the name or a part of the name (see 'Search Tips' for further information) in the 'Publication Name' field and press Search. Results will be displayed immediately - simply click on the publication title or front cover image to view the full record.

From here you can view that magazine's full entry to find information such as contact details, a general description, demographics, advertising rates and deadline information, plus publications specifications and deadlines.

Publisher Name:if you are unsure of the exact name of a publication but you know the publisher, use the 'Publisher Name' field. Enter either the whole or part name and press search. Search results will contain any magazines that have publishers matching your search. Click the magazines title or front cover to view the magazines entry, or click the publisher name to view the entry for the publisher.
 Magazine Search Fields
 the search fields and filters available for Magazines
Description:if you are looking for a publication or range of publications which contain something specific, you can choose to use the 'Description' field. Type in a search term such as 'cook' for all magazines containing variations of the word 'cook' in the publications general description to view a list of all matching magazines. For information on how to make this feature more efficient, including using multiple search values and 'search characters', see 'Advanced Searching'.
Readership Desc:if you are looking for a particular audience, for example, chefs, use the 'readership desc' field. The readership field contains information such as a magazines target audience and demographic information and will return a list of any magazines that match your search. To further narrow your search, try one of the 'Advanced Searching' techniques.
Circulation:if you are interested in a publication's circulation details, enter a start range to display publications with a matching circulation range. You can choose to refine this to CAB or ABC certified statistics only. This field may be combined with any of our other search fields to narrow your results.
Categories:if you know the type of publication you wish to view, use the 'Category' field. This is a predetermined list of categories contained within the Media Directory. Choosing from this list will return all publications in that particular category.

Magazine Contact Search Back to TopTop

Contact SearchThe contact search returns a list of contact information for key personnel associated specifically with magazines. Type in the name or part name of a magazine or magazines publisher to view contact information for staff members. If you know the first name, surname or email address of a specific person you can use that to search for contacts without knowing which magazine they work for.

To search for a list of personnel of a particular type, use the position search to return all matching editors or advertising managers for example. From here you can also create a list of names specific to your needs. (see 'Help - Lists')

Magazine Lists Back to TopTop

To access these Lists, use the left hand menu 'Download Lists' link. The lists are divided into three main groupings, content and editors, sales and advertising and executives and managers. The lists are created by combining the most commonly used search terms of Media Directory users.
