    • It must be fixed
    • It should be publicly available
    • It should be persistent
    • Authenticity must be guaranteed
    • A bibliographic record that describes the work should be available
    • There should be a commitment to access and retrievability through archiving

Web Magazine
  • Informative - content is king
  • Articles should be original
  • The magazine is likely to be mainly static and not change after publication
  • Identifiable look

  • A shorter, more snappy version of a Web Magazine
  • Usually written by and for fans like fanzines
  • Quite often only one writer

  • NOTE
  • The boundaries between these definitions are very blurred. You need to decide what purpose your publication should have and set yourself guidelines prior to publishing.
  • Any questions?
