These are what you see on the newsstand. The purpose of popular magazines is to provide news, entertainment, and information of a broad nature. Popular magazines contain articles of national or international interest and the information they contain can be quite useful. The articles are written by members of the editorial or reporting staff, a journalist, or a freelance writer. The language is geared towards a general audience. Some of the magazines are in newspaper format and almost all contain many pictures and photographs. They may be published by commercial organizations or individuals although some may come from professional organizations. Very rarely do they cite sources.
