1. An entry which would have been superfluous in past editions of this encyclopedia because – with the exception of Centauri Express, which was a magazine in audio-cassette form (see Audiozine) – all Magazines, other than personal hand-written ones, were in print form. This may range from beautifully designed and printed SF Magazines such as Shayol or Ariel: to the most minor of Fanzines as once duplicated from typewritten stencils. It was only with the arrival of the internet and the production of Online Magazines, primarily since 1995, that a new digital form of magazine has emerged. These magazines may be read on screen or downloaded onto an e-book reader. Some may also be printed either via a PDF download or as print-on-demand publications, so many online magazines may also be available in print form, but their primary form is digital.
Print magazines may exist in several formats (see Magazines) usually designated by the physical dimensions or paper quality. See Pulp, Slick, Digest and Bedsheet for further details.
The following is a list of all of the print science-fiction magazines, whether Prozines or Semiprozines, with entries in this work. This includes magazines that have been predominantly in print form even if they have subsequently gone online. For a list of all Online Magazines given entries, see that entry. For Academic Journals, Boys' Papers, magazines in Dime-Novel SF format, Games Magazines, Media Magazines about or mostly about sf Cinema, Radio and Television, and non-sf Pulp or Slick magazines, see those respective entries. Sf news magazines and news fanzines are listed under Newszines. For a few miscellaneous non-specialist magazines and other publications that fall into none of these categories but have entries in this encyclopedia, see 2 below.
