Publication dateتاریخ اشاعت

The publication date of a journal or magazine is the date on which it is made available to the public. This can be the date that the print edition is made available for purchase, or the date that the digital edition is made available online. The publication date is typically listed on the cover of the magazine or journal, and it is used to identify the issue and distinguish it from previous and future issues. Some publications are released on a regular schedule, such as weekly, monthly, or quarterly, while others may be published less frequently, such as annually or biannually. The publication date is often used to identify the relevance and currency of the content contained within the publication.

There are several different types of publication dates that can be used to identify the release of a journal or magazine. Some of the most common types of publication dates include:

  • Print publication date: This is the date on which the print edition of a magazine or journal is made available for purchase. This is typically the primary publication date for print publications, and it is often listed on the cover of the magazine or journal.
  • Digital publication date: This is the date on which the digital edition of a magazine or journal is made available online. Digital publications may be released on the same date as the print edition, or they may be released earlier or later depending on the publication schedule.
  • Embargo date: This is the date on which content from a magazine or journal is made available to the public, but it is not yet allowed to be published or disseminated by other sources. Embargo dates are often used to allow time for journalists and other media outlets to review and report on the content before it is widely available.
  • On-sale date: This is the date on which a magazine or journal is made available for purchase in stores or online. This date may be different from the print or digital publication date, and it is often used to coordinate the release of the publication with the distribution and marketing efforts of the publisher.
