ezine (electronic magazine)

The term ezine is short for "electronic magazine." "E-zine" and "e-Zine" are spelling variations. A similar term is "ejournal." There are several usages of the term ezine. The term is similar to zine, which is derived from magazine and is used to describe "small press" or personally distributed magazines or newsletters.

1) An early use of the term ezine described a new kind of Web site that contained a stylized mixture of content (articles, pictures, poetry, fiction, and comment) conveyed in a way that exploited and celebrated the Web as a new information medium. Examples include Salon and HotWired.

2) Some ezines publishers saw ezines as an opportunity to reach an audience electronically and more economically than was possible with print medium. As a result, hundreds of Web site ezines were created, each devoted to a special cause, subject, or sensibility. This kind of ezine is roughly the cyberspace equivalent of the printed version and when printed out, is in fact, the equivalent.

3) The term is also used to describe any print magazine such as National Geographic or Newsweek that also has an electronic edition.

4) The term also sometimes includes e-mail newsletters, of which there are thousands that can be subscribed to. Some of these refer to themselves as zines or ezines.
