Publications issued at regular intervals, such as magazines and journals

Periodical literature (also called a periodical publication or simply a periodical) is a category of serial publications that appear in a new edition on a regular schedule. The most familiar example is the magazine, typically published weekly, monthly or quarterly. Newspapers, often published daily or weekly, are, strictly speaking, a separate category of serial. Other examples of periodicals are newsletters, literary magazines (literary journals), academic journals (including scientific journals), science magazines and yearbooks.

The Libertarian Press, by William Henry Longton (editor), Ronald Lora (editor), The Conservative Press in Twentieth-Century America, 1999
Introduction to historical reviews of Freeman (1920-24), Freeman (1950-), analysis, New Individualist Review, Objectivist, Fragments and Libertarian Forum
"Frank Chodorov, whose rock-ribbed libertarian convictions led him to found the Intercollegiate Society of Individualists (1953) and author a book revealingly titled One Is a Crowd (1952), once told a friend that 'anyone who calls me a conservative deserves a punch in the nose.' In the pages that follow, Robert Hessen wonders whether Ayn Rand's publications (and by implication those of other libertarians) should appear in a study of the American conservative press."
