How to Make a Magazine Using Microsoft Word

By Contributing Writer

Updated September 28, 2017

Creating a magazine in Microsoft Word is somewhat different from making it in a publishing software like Adobe InDesign, but it is not completely unheard of. It can work and give you a solid looking end result.

Open a new document in Microsoft Word.

Set up your document to have bound document margins. To do this, go to the "Page Setup" box and select "Book Fold." This will create a single margin for the two pages.

Write the name of your magazine using a large font on the first page of your document.

Insert a photo by navigating to "Insert," then "Picture," then "From File." Choose the picture you wish to insert and size it on your page. (See the Resources below on how to adjust the picture's position and text wrapping.)

Create a set of tables to create columns by navigating to "Insert," then "Tables." Two columns would be a good place to start, but you can also create 3, 4 or 5 columns of type. Remove the rules on the columns. (See the Resources below for more on using columns in Microsoft Word.)

Add your text to the columns and add photos as necessary.

Save your file as a PDF by navigating to "File," then "Save As" and choosing ".pdf" as your file type.

Put your file on a CD and take it to the nearest print shop for printing.

What is the purpose of a magazine.

As stated, a real estate magazine is a way for businesses to advertise and share whatever products and/or services that they have to offer to the masses. With a magazine, one can go into greater detail regarding what's being promoted as the number of pages and spaces allows for more information. 

How to Make a Magazine in Word

1. open up microsoft word.

Since you'll be using Microsoft Word to make your sample magazine. You'll need to start by launching the software and then going to the File tab and select "New." Choose to either start from a blank document or with a template that is available from the list. You'll then want to set up margins for your magazine. To do this, you'll have to go to "Page Setup" and then select "Book Fold." This will allow you to create a single margin for your pages.

2. Insert Images

To make your magazine look attractive, you'll want to include a few pictures. This is something that you'll especially want to do for your magazine cover . What you choose will depend on what it is that you're promoting. If it's a fashion magazine, then you'll want images of whatever creative and colorful or formal clothes that should be advertised. If it's a food magazine, then you'll want pictures of different cuisines you're promoting such as French or American. To insert an image, go to "Insert" and then "Picture" in order to choose what you want to place. 

3. Make Tables

The purpose of this is so that you can create columns for your modern magazine. In order for you to make tables, then you'll need to make your way to "Insert" yet again and then click on "Tables." You can choose how many columns you want to start with but it's usually best to go with two. You'll want to remove the rules on the columns to make them look cleaner. 

4. Create the Content

What is it that you want to share with your readers? This is the question that you will need to answer when making the content for your creative magazine. This is where you will need to present as much detail as you can on whatever it is that you're trying to promote. You'll want to include important details such as names, dates, and even locations when you need to.

5. Edit What You Need To

Before you start printing your magazines, you'll need to go through it to see if there is anything that you need to edit. Check every sentence to see if there are any grammatical or spelling errors that you need to fix. It is also important that you check the accuracy of whatever information you've placed. If you see that the magazine is missing crucial content, then be sure to put it in right away. Once you're done, you can then go to the File tab, click on "Save As," and then choose the location in which you want to save your work.

TAPS: Preparing Your Article with Microsoft Word


The ACM article template allows authors to use LaTeX or Microsoft Word to prepare high-quality articles for publication in the ACM Digital Library. This document provides authors with instructions on how to use the article template to prepare their work and submit it to TAPS, the ACM article production system.

The introduction of the ACM article template in 2017 was an important building block for the future of the ACM Digital Library, as it made more consistent the underlying metadata that is a part of an author's source material - the LaTeX commands and Word styles an author uses in the preparation of their article defines the various parts of their article: the title, the authors, the section headings, and so on.

An important concept for authors to understand is the separation of content and style. The input format - whether Word or LaTeX - is intentionally simple in appearance, making creation and editing simpler, as well as reviewing. Authors provide metadata - through LaTeX commands - \title{}, \section{} and so on - and associating styles with content in a Word document - "this is a paragraph, this is a subtitle," and so on. TAPS takes Word or LaTeX documents as input, and produces well-formatted, high-quality PDF and HTML5 documents for publication. More information on TAPS can be found in this document: TAPS: The ACM Production System .

  • Prepare your source material using Word or LaTeX, starting with the Word submission template or a LaTeX document that uses the "acmart" document class. The submission version is one column, with minimal styling of content.
  • Submit your article for review to a conference or journal.
  • If your article is accepted for publication, you will be asked to complete the ACM rights form, then prepare a final version of your article and submit the source to TAPS for processing.
  • Review the PDF and HTML versions of your article generated by TAPS, correct errors necessary and, once the proceedings production editor has reviewed the material and deemed it acceptable for publication, approve your article in TAPS.

Communication between the author and ACM regarding your rights form is done via e-mail; please make sure you add "[email protected]" to your e-mail "whitelist" so that you don't miss any communication from ACM.

This document explains how to use Microsoft Word to prepare your ACM article for submission, and for publication. If you are using LaTeX to prepare your ACM article, you should review this document instead. The same topics are covered, and the emphasis there is on using LaTeX to accomplish the task.

Back to Top


Authors who use Microsoft Word to prepare their articles can obtain the required Word documents - the "submission template" that contains style information used to tag the elements of your article, and the "master template" that contains macros for citation, reference, figure and image cross-linking, and manuscript validation, from this link .

Please note: You must use Microsoft Word, not LibreOffice, OpenOffice, Google Docs or other alternatives.

Windows and Macintosh users will start with the same submission template Word document, adding their content to it and applying styles to each of the major elements - title, paragraph, figure, and so on - to it. This template Word document can be found at this link.

There are separate versions of the "master template" for Microsoft Word for Windows , Macintosh Office 2011 , and Macintosh Office 2016 - please download the version appropriate for your operating system and Microsoft Word version. (The Macintosh Office 2016 version also works with the Microsoft Office 365 version of Microsoft Word for Macintosh.)

Attaching the "master template" to your existing Word document is done in slightly different ways, dependent on your computer's operating system.

  • select "Templates and Add-Ins" from the "Tools" menu.
  • select the "Attach..." button and then select the master template file.
  • select "Options" from the "File" menu.
  • select "Add-Ins" from the "Word Options" dialog box.
  • select "Templates" from the "Manage" option menu, and then select the master template file.
  • (If you get a security warning about disabled macros, please select the "Enable Content" button.)


Your article should be prepared in a one-column format. The Microsoft Word submission template prepares your content in a single column by default. TAPS will convert the one-column Word document to the familiar two-column article format - a PDF document - when the Word document is processed, as well as a responsive HTML5 version. Both will be made available in the ACM Digital Library.

An example will illustrate this more clearly. This Word document - a simple example with two images, one spanning both columns, and numbered citations and references - can be viewed in Microsoft Word, in both "Draft" and "Print Layout" mode, to show the two images and all of the styles which have been applied to the various parts of the document. When this Word document is sent to TAPS, and the file is processed, one of the generated files is this PDF document. If you are interested in seeing the samples with author year citations and references, the Word document and PDF document are also available.

The Word Count and Page Count section, below, provides rough correspondences between word count and formatted-PDF page count.


When preparing an article using Microsoft Word, you should be working in "Draft" mode (and not "Print Layout" mode) and have set up Word so that the applied styles are clearly visible on the left side of your document.

  • select "Draft" from the "View" menu.
  • select "Preferences" from the Word menu, select "View" and set "Style area width" to 1.5 inches.
  • select "Options" from the "File" menu
  • select the "Advanced" tab from the "Word Options" dialog box
  • in the "Display" section, set the value of "Style area pane width in Draft and Outline views" to 1.5 inches.

Figures will not show up in "Draft" mode, and it's fine to switch between "Print Layout" and "Draft" mode while you are working on your document.


When preparing an article for submission to an event or journal for REVIEW, the amount of tagging - applying styles to discrete elements of your article - which must be done is smaller. The emphasis at this point is on the content you are presenting. Your article should have figures and images, and citations and references, and the text of your presentation.

If and when your article is accepted for publication, you will need to perform additional work in order to make your article ready to submit to TAPS. Adding alt-text to figures, tables, and images, cross-linking citations and references, and validation of your article are all required at this part of the process.

Please note that you do NOT need to add any rights information to your Word document. This will be automatically added to the PDF and HTML5 versions of your article when they are generated by TAPS. (At present, the generated version of your completed rights form that is sent to you when you complete the rights form instructs you to add this information to your Word document, and this inconsistency between instruction and implementation is being addressed by ACM personnel at this time.)


Authors who use Microsoft Word to prepare their articles do not need to set the template style; the appropriate template - set by the organizers of the event or journal - will be used by TAPS in the preparation of the PDF and HTML5 versions of your article.


Sponsored events and journal publications often use page counts to segregate articles into several classes - "long papers," "short papers," "abstracts" and the like. The simplified input format of Word documents may make it difficult to determine a correspondence between "word count" and the "page count" of a well-formatted PDF document.

The following table illustrates - in general terms - a correspondence between word count and page count. The sample documents contained no figures, tables, or other elements typically found in an article, and this was exclusive of references or appendices.


  • Authors' full names - "Donald E. Knuth" - should be used, without abbreviation - "D. E. Knuth" and "D. Knuth" are not acceptable alternatives. (This is true of references as well; authors' full names are easier to clearly identify for citation linking.)
  • Each author must have an institution, country, and e-mail address.
  • Authors must define each author and affiliation separately, even when authors share an affiliation, and apply the "Authors" and "Affiliation" tag to each author and affiliation.


References should be prepared in the ACM reference format. The default citation format for ACM publications is the "numbered" format. Articles presented at conferences sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and ACM SIGPLAN use the "author year" format.

Authors who use Microsoft Word should choose the first - "1" - option when cross-linking their citations and references for the numbered format, and the second - "2" - option for the "author year" format.

Additional information on the preparation of citations and references in Microsoft Word can be found in this document: TAPS: Citations and References in Word .


ACM's Computing Classification System (CCS) is a taxonomy for the computing field. Authors are expected to select one or more descriptors (or "concepts") from the CCS and add them to your document.

A list of CCS descriptors can be built for your article from https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm . Authors can select one or more descriptors and assign a priority to them.

  • select the formatted list of concept(s) from the Web interface - here's an example: • Computer systems organization~Real-time operating systems - paste it into your document, and style with the "CCSDescription" tag.
  • select "Properties" from the "File" menu
  • select the "Summary" tab
  • paste the XML into the "Comments" area
  • select "Advanced Properties"

Users may augment the ACM taxonomy with user-defined keywords. The Keywords section is a comma-separated list of keywords, each styled with the "Keyword" tag.

Your article should begin with a short - one or two paragraphs - abstract, providing an overview of the work to be presented. Style the abstract with the "Abstract" tag.

There are four different sectioning levels available to authors, with the "Head1" through "Head4" styles. A top-level section would be styled with the "Head1" tag, a subsection would use the "Head2" style, and so on.

Please use these sectioning tags / styles, and do not produce your own for a different look than what is provided.

Paragraphs must be styled with the "Para" tag. The exception to this is when an equation, table, or other element is placed within the paragraph. In this case, the remainder of the current paragraph is styled with the "ParaContinue" tag so that no indentation of the text occurs.

Equations can be added with the built-in Equation Editor or a third-party application such as MathType. Use the "DisplayFormula" (for equations with an equation number) or "DisplayFormulaUnnum" (for equations with no equation number) styles as appropriate.

When equations occur in the middle of a paragraph of text, please use the "ParaContinue" style on the part of the paragraph that occurs after the equation.

When an algorithm is included in an article, the declaration of the algorithm starts the algorithm, and is styled with the "AlgorithmCaption" tag. The algorithm itself follows, and all of its lines are styled with the "Algorithm" tag.


Figures and tables are "float elements" which should be inserted in the Word document after their first occurrence.

When working in "draft" mode, figures are not visible - there will be a blank space where the figure occurs. Switching to "Print Mode" will reveal the figure.

The "Image" style should be applied to the figure, and the "FigureCaption" style to its caption. Figure captions go below the figure, and captions are required elements.

Images that occupy a single column should be sized to fit within the column - 3 inches (7.62 cm) wide is a reasonable value. (In general, you should scale images to the size they will occupy in the finished two-column PDF output.)

If you wish to have an image or figure that spans multiple columns OR wish to have multiple images in a single figure, this should be done only after your article has been accepted for publication and you are preparing your article for TAPS.

Figures with multiple images - three smaller images in the same figure, for example, or a three by three grid of images in the same figure - are accomplished by creating a table with the necessary number of rows and columns, and inserting an image into each of the table's cells. These kinds of figures must have the caption styled with the "TableCaption" tag.

  • right-clicking on the figure, and selecting the "Edit Alt Text" option (Macintosh) or selecting "Format Picture," then the "Layout & Properties" icon, and the "Alt Text" option from there. (Windows)
  • adding one or two sentences that describe the figure.

If you are embedding copyright information in the figures in your article, please do so using an image-editing application (Photoshop, GIMP, etc.) and do not use a "text box" to do so.

Please use Word's built-in table editor to create tables in your Word document.

The table's head row should be selected and styled with the "TableHead" tag, found under "Body Elements."

The "TableCaption" style should be applied to the table's caption. Table captions go above the table, and is a required element.

Column-spanning Tables and Figures

Figures and Tables that should span both columns of your formatted article need additional styling applied to them, so that TAPS will properly format them.

After the appropriate figure and/or table styles have been applied to the figure or table which will span multiple columns, select both the figure or table AND its caption, and style them with the "Large Float" tag, found under "Body Elements."

Cross-linking Tables and Figures

Providing links to figures and tables from elsewhere in your article is straightforward. This is done after the "master template" has been added to your Word document.

  • each figure and table should have a consistent label at the start of its caption: "Figure 2" or "Table 1" or similar.
  • the link to a figure or table should use the same language: "...as seen in Figure 2,"

Cross-linking the citations and the figures and tables is accomplished by selecting "Reference and Cross Linking" -> "Cross-referencing" -> "Floats and Bibliography" and allowing Word to run that macro. If successful, both the label in the figure or table, and the citation to the figure or table should now be active links and colored, rather than plain text.

The "Floats and Bibliography" macro is the same one used to link references and citations in your article.

Lists - numbered, bullets, etc. - can be created using the standard Word list commands, and should be styled with the "List Paragraph" tag when complete.


  • Title_document - the style for your article's title
  • Subtitle - the style for your article's subtitle if it has one
  • AbsHead - the "Abstract" heading
  • AckHead - the "Acknowledgments" heading
  • CCSHead - the "CCS Concepts" heading
  • KeyWordHead - the "Keywords" heading
  • ReferenceHead - the "References" heading


Acknowledgments are placed before the references, and should include any required or desired mention of support, sponsorship, or funding. The "GrantSponser" and "GrantNumber" tags should be used to style the grant sponsor and grant number information, respectively.

Appendices should follow the references. There are three - "AppendixH1," "AppendixH2," and "AppendixH3" - section heading styles for use in an appendix, analogous to the "Head1," "Head2," and "Head3" styles used in the body of your article. All other styles can and should be used in the appendix in the same manner as they are used in the body of your article.

How to Write a Magazine Article? 12 Golden Rules

write magazine article

Although the number of magazines is shrinking in the digital age, many magazines have moved online. Many magazines created with online magazine maker are still popular, and authors enjoy fame and respect. That’s why, for many freelance writers, writing articles in magazines is often a career goal – because the pay can be ten times more per word than writing articles or texts for the local newspaper.

Writing magazine articles requires a different skill set than writing blog posts, screenplays, or advertisements. What’s more, as a magazine writer, more than in any other industry, you need to specialize to succeed. You write articles about history differently, sports differently, and sports history in a different way still.

A talent for writing, a love of meticulous research, and flexibility in creating texts are vital skills you need to master. Therefore, many people are interested in creating and publishing their own magazine need to master this specific style and learn how to write a magazine article.

What is a magazine article?

What is a magazine.

A magazine is a publication that is a collection of articles that appears regularly. The magazine articles can be about any topic, as well as topics that interest a specific group, such as sports fans, music fans, or board game enthusiasts.

A magazine can be published weekly, monthly, bimonthly, or only a few times a year. Most magazines are published once a week or once a month. Most magazine articles do not have a list of sources and are written by regular magazine editors and writers, rarely freelance writers.

what is a magazine

Most magazine articles are easy to read and don’t take too long to read. They are often illustrated with photos or other images, and are written with simple but remarkable fonts . Today, magazines are increasingly being replaced by websites, but there are still many magazines on various topics.

A magazine article is a specific text that can be found in a magazine or newspaper. It can be a report, a profile of an important person, an opinion piece, a discussion of a topic or a personal essay. Depending on the topic, a magazine article is usually 1,000 to 5,000 words long.

The magazine usually employs a group of editors who come up with a theme for each issue and relevant article ideas. This way, all the articles and features in the issue will have something in common. A sports magazine might talk about the start of a new season, a political magazine about an upcoming election, and a Valentine’s Day issue might be about romance.

magazine article mock up

How the format of a magazine article differs from that of a newspaper or other articles? In a newspaper that comes out every day, put the most important parts of the story first. Newspaper articles are usually read once and aren’t supposed to influence anyone. It has to be news, something you want to read.

On the other hand, a good magazine article should often start with a mystery, a question, or a situation that makes the reader want to read on. Daily newspaper articles should be unbiased descriptions of what happened, while magazine articles, often subjective, can cover a particular topic from a certain angle. To learn how to write a magazine article, you need to know what the magazine is about and how to appeal to its readers.

Types and examples of magazine articles

Magazine editors categorize articles by type and often mention them in publication’s submission guidelines, so knowing these types by name will help you communicate with the editor. These are: First Person Article, Opinion Piece, Information or Service Piece, Personality Profile, and Think Piece. Many news articles, how-to articles, and reviews can also be found in magazines, but they are slightly different, and many of these have moved online, to digital magazines . Articles can also feature essays or humor pieces.

magazine reading

First Person Article

First-person magazine articles are written in the first person because they are based on personal experience. Depending on their length and newsworthiness, they can be sold as feature articles or essays. They are frequently personal accounts, especially interesting if they are written by a well-known magazine writer or celebrity. Typically, the purpose of such an article is stated in the first line or paragraph to hook the magazine’s target audience, such as “I voted for this politician, and now I regret my life choices.” When you write a magazine article like this one, you should present an unpopular or overlooked point of view from a fresh perspective.

Opinion Piece

This kind of magazine writing piece or opinion essay is less personal than the First-Person Article, but it still requires a narrow focus on a specific topic. The reader’s main question is, “Why are you qualified to render an opinion?” Everyone has an opinion, but why should anyone read yours?

If you’re an expert on this subject, let the reader know right away. Don’t criticize music trends if you’re not a musician! Demonstrate your knowledge, and support your opinion with up-to-date information and credentials.

Information/Service Piece

An informational or service piece expands the reader’s understanding of a particular subject. This can be a guide, a list of important issues. You can either be the expert or interview one. These are extremely pertinent to a specific industry. In a sports magazine article, you can explain a complete history of a sports team and its roster for the upcoming season.

You can expect some in-depth knowledge if the article title contains the phrases like Myths about or Secrets of. Explain everything you know: magazine journalism is different than being a freelance writer in that you should have some industry knowledge already.

Personality profile

This type of magazine article can present a silhouette of an important or relevant person – a politician, a political activist, a sports legend… If you’re writing for a video game magazine you can showcase a famous game designer or even an entire article can be about a game character like Lara Croft or Guybrush Threepwood, if the fictional character is detailed enough! Explain why readers will find this person interesting or noteworthy.

Think Piece

Written in an investigative tone, the think piece frequently shows the downside or less popular ideas of a popular industry aspect. This magazine article could also explain why something is popular or why a political party lost elections. A think piece is more in-depth than most feature articles and necessitates credibility. Confirm your thesis by interviewing analysts and experts. This type of article can be also found in zines , self-published magazines in small circulation, which often focus on niche hobbies, counterculture groups, or subcultures. If you would like to expend your knowledge about interviewing, make sure to check our guide on how to write an interview article .

How to start a magazine article?

Most creative writing professionals would agree that the best way to start writing a magazine article is with a strong opening sentence. A feature article must draw the attention of your target audience, and grab them from the go.

You can start by asking the reader a question which you will answer in the text of the article – for instance “Did you know that most users of Windows never use 80% of their functions – and that’s a good thing?”. In the content of your magazine articles you will be able to answer this question.

Another example of a good magazine article beginning is storytelling – human brains are fascinated by stories. Starting your example with “20 years ago no one in the industry knew what a genitine was, but now their inventor is one of the most influential people” can draw attention and spike up curiosity.


A great example is also a shocking quote – a compelling idea that goes against the grain is sure to capture the reader’s attention.

Most creative magazine article ideas

Even the most experienced journalists can often be looking for ideas for great articles. How to write a magazine article if you don’t have the slightest idea? Here are some of our suggestions:

Take a look at your specialty. If you’re a freelance writer, it’s a good idea to write about what you know. Delve into a topic thoroughly, and you’ll eventually find your niche and you might move from freelance writing jobs to magazine writing! Why? Having a writing specialty will make magazine editors think of you when story ideas in that genre come up.

Check out what’s trending. When browsing popular stories on social networks, many freelancers choose to write about current events. Lists of popular articles can help you understand what to focus your efforts on. Keep in mind that an article for national magazines needs to be well researched, and what’s trending now may change before the magazine finally comes out.

Reach out to the classics. Nostalgia always sells well. You can go back to books or movies that people remember from their youth or, for example, summarize the last year. Lists and numbers always look good!

12 rules on how to write great magazine articles

magazine making

1. Write what you know about

If your articles are really fascinating and you know what you are writing about, you have a better chance of getting published, whether in a local newspaper or in a major magazine. Writing requires researching your chosen issue thoroughly. Identify perspectives that have not been explored before – describe something from the perspective of a woman, a minority, or a worker.

2. Research how you should write

Check the writing style requirements or guidelines of the magazines to which you want to submit your work. Each magazine has its own set of guidelines on what topics, manner and tone to use. Check out Strunk and White Elements of Style for tips on writing styles, as this is what many magazines draw from.

3. Remember to be flexible

One of the most valuable writing talents a journalist can possess is flexibility. You may find that you discover completely new facts while writing a magazine article and completely change your approach. Maybe you’ll change your mind 180 degrees and instead of attacking someone, you’ll defend them – anything to attract attention.

4. Make connections and meet people

Networking is important in any business, especially for freelance writers who want to make a jump to magazine writing. Editors regularly quit one magazine to work for another. Therefore, remember to know the people first and foremost than the magazine they work for.

5. Prepare a query letter

A query letter tells the editors why your magazine article is important, whether you think someone will want to read it and why you feel obligated to write it. Add to it a text sample and some information about yourself as a writer. Even a local magazine might not be aware of who you are, after all.

6. Prepare an outline

Always before writing a text have an outline that you can use when composing your articles. It must contain the important ideas, the content of the article body and the summary, the points you will include in it. You will find that it is easier to fill such a framework with your own content.

7. Meet the experts

You need to know pundits in your industry. There are several methods of locating experts, from networking to calling organizations or agencies in your field of interest. If you want to meet a police officer, call the police station and ask if someone could talk to a journalist – many people are tempted if you promise them a feature article.

8. Talk to experts

Once you get a contact for an expert, do your best to make the expert look as good as possible. The more prominent the expert, the better your text. Make a list of questions in advance and compare it with the outline to make sure you don’t forget anything. Remember to accurately describe your expert’s achievements and personal data.

9. Create a memorable title

This step can occur at any point in the process of writing an article for a magazine. Sometimes the whole article starts with a good title! However, there is nothing wrong with waiting until the article is finished before coming up with a title. The most important thing is that the title is catchy – editors-in-chief love that!

10. To write, you have to read

You never know where you will come across an inspiring text. It’s your duty as a good writer to read everything that falls into your hands, whether it’s articles on the front pages of major publications or small blog posts. Learn about the various issues that may be useful to your magazine writing skills .

11. Add a strong ending

End with a strong concluding remark that informs or elaborates on the theme of your piece. The last paragraph should make the reader satisfied, but also curious about the future progress of the issue. He must wonder “what’s next?” and answer the important questions himself.

12. Don’t give up

Writers are rejected hundreds of times, especially when they are initially learning how to create articles for magazines. However, even a seasoned freelance writer and professional journalist can get rejected. The most successful authors simply keep writing – being rejected is part of magazine writing. Freelance writing is a good school of writing career – including coping with rejection.

Now you know how to write a magazine article that will be engaging and interesting. Despite the digitalization of the market, writing magazine articles still offers many possibilities to a freelance writer or a seasoned professional. The market of press and magazines is evolving fast, but the basic principles of journalistic integrity stay the same!

Due in part to customers overwhelmingly obtaining news information from electronic media such as tablets, smart phones and the Internet, print journalism has receded to the point where the Newspaper Death Watch website offers a "rest in peace" section listing organizations that, like their pages, have folded. Bridge the gap between the printed page and electronic readability by making your own newspaper using Microsoft Word. Although Word doesn't offer a newspaper template, you can quickly manipulate the software into something tangible to print out or to distribute online.

Start Word. Click the "Page Layout" tab. Click the "Size" button below the tab. Click the "More Paper Sizes" option. Enter the dimensions for the newspaper into the "Width" and "Height" boxes, such as "11" and "17" respectively. Keep in mind that most standard printers can only print 8.5 inches by 11 inches. Click the "OK" button.

Click the "Columns" button on the ribbon. Click the "Three" button. You won't see anything change on the Word document since there isn't text yet, but you will see the columns break into three on the small ruler stretching across the top of the Word document.

Click the "Insert" tab. Click the "Header" button and select the "Alphabet" option or whichever is your preference. You want to choose one with a line running along the bottom to serve as your masthead distinction.

Click into the "Type Text" section of the header. Type the name of the newspaper. Press the "Enter" key and type the date of the issue, volume number and any other details you desire.

Highlight the newspaper name text. Click the "Home" tab. Increase the font with the "Font size" menu and change the font if desired. Click the "Align Center" button to align the header in the center of the page.

Click the "Insert" tab again. Click the "Picture" button. Browse to a digital logo for the newspaper and double-click it, then drag it into place on the left or right side of the masthead. Check the "Different First Page" box on the green "Header & Footer Tools" tab's ribbon so the masthead only appears on the first page of the newspaper. Click the red "X" button, "Close Header and Footer," to close the masthead and return to the Word document.

Type the first article on the page, starting with the title, author's byline, city and state information. As you type, Word performs word wrapping in the columns and moves text to a new column when you come to the end of one.

Add pictures to the newspaper to go with the articles following the same process as importing a logo, by clicking the "Insert" tab's "Picture" button and browsing to and double-clicking the picture.

Click the "File" tab. Click "Save As." Type a name for the newspaper, with a version number if desired, such as CityNews08-21-2011, and click the "Save" button.

How to Make a Magazine

Last Updated: March 22, 2022

wikiHow is a “wiki,” similar to Wikipedia, which means that many of our articles are co-written by multiple authors. To create this article, 115 people, some anonymous, worked to edit and improve it over time. This article has been viewed 735,351 times. Learn more...

Putting together a magazine is a great way to share your vision in print. Some DIY zines even become more professional publications down the line. But there's no reason to wait. In order to make a magazine, you simply need to create meaningful content around a solid theme capable of attracting a specific market, then organize that content into an appealing layout and publish it digitally or via print. You can make a handmade magazine, or use computer software to design and print a professional-quality magazine yourself.

Getting Started

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 1

  • Ask yourself: Will this be a standalone publication or one in a series? If it’s part of a series, what’s your larger theme?
  • Try to draw the title of your magazine out of this overarching theme. Note that most magazines have one- or two-word titles (such as TIME , National Geographic , Seventeen , Rolling Stone , and Forbes ). Not only can a short title sum up your theme nicely, it's also easier to deal with from a design standpoint.
  • A good example of themed issues are the prom editions of teen magazines, or the Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated . All of the content inside that issue ties back to the primary focus.
  • Annual examples of titling an issue include the Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated , the Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair , and the September Issue of Vogue .

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 2

  • Though the glossy, software-enhanced look is a magazine standard, making one without the use of computers can give your magazine an art-house feel. However, this will require lots of extra time and talent and is best suited for people who have already done similar projects.
  • If these options aren’t in your price range, Office Publisher might be an effective alternative.

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 3

  • A deadline is more important if you're dealing with topical issues (such as news or humor), or if you're building the issue around an annual event (such as fall fashion).

Creating Content

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 4

  • Write articles about topics you or your collaborators care about. Do they tackle humanitarian issues? Are they related to current events? Do they offer advice or interview interesting people?
  • Write short stories to give your magazine a more personal touch. These can be fiction or nonfiction depending on how they relate to your topic.
  • Dig up old poems, or ask friends if you can publish their work in your magazine. These would give a magazine an artistic flair.
  • Collaborating with friends to get different perspectives would be a great way to approach this aspect of the magazine.

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 5

  • Take photographs that relate to your content. Be sure to include photos with empty, neutral spaces; these make great backgrounds over which to place written content.
  • Make a photojournalism project. This means exploring one topic in-depth and guiding the reader along with a series of photos. This is a good option for people with strong photography skills.
  • Search for images licensed with the Creative Commons license online. While all of these photos will be free, be sure to read up on whether or not you need to attribute the photo, have permission to alter the photo, or can only use the photo for noncommercial purposes.
  • Purchase stock images from a stock photography database. While this is a slightly more expensive route, stock photos are taken with exactly this kind of project in mind, making it easy for you to find images that correspond with your content.
  • Draw your own pictures, or join forces with someone who does. This is recommended for an art-house-style magazine.

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 6

  • Most magazines put this at the top of the cover, in order to make the brand prominent. For some interesting examples of how you can play with the interplay between the title and what's on your cover, look up cover images for Harper's Bazaar .
  • Decide what's going to be on the cover for this issue. Fashion magazines often use cover models, while gossip magazines use paparazzi or staged photos, and news magazines might use portraits. Whatever image you use, it should look compelling and be connected to your magazine's main story.
  • Write blurbs (optional). Some magazines will only write a blurb or a title for the main story (such as TIME or Newsweek ), while others will tease several stories on the cover (such as Cosmopolitan or People .) If you choose the second option, try to make sure your cover doesn't start to look cluttered.

Assembling Your Content

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 7

  • The font: Are you using fonts inside the magazine that are easy to read and fit with your theme? Do they call back to the font you used for your magazine's title, on the cover?
  • The paper: Are you going to print your magazine on glossy or matte paper?
  • The color: Some magazines, such as People , used to be half color, half black and white to save on ink costs. Many literary magazines are printed in black and white, though most mainstream titles have moved to color. Consider what you can afford to spend on ink per issue, and how you can incorporate that into your magazine's look and feel.

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 8

  • Usually the table of contents goes first. If your magazine has many ads, there can be several pages of them before the table of contents.
  • A colophon follows the table of contents. The colophon should list the title, the volume and issue of the magazine (both will be 1 if this is the first), the place of publication, and the personnel who worked on it (such as editors, writers and photographers).
  • Order your articles so that the main piece is somewhere in the middle, or even toward the back.
  • Consider doing a whimsical "back page". Many magazines, such as TIME or Vanity Fair use the last page of the magazine for fun, skimmable content, such as an engaging infographic or a silly interview.

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 9

  • Keep your formatting consistent. Use the same borders, styles, numbering, and font or fonts throughout; the last thing you want is to create a Frankenzine that looks patched together by twelve different people.
  • Number your pages, especially if you've provided a table of contents.
  • Make sure your final product is even-numbered (counting the cover). If you try to make an odd-numbered magazine, you'll have at least one blank page.
  • If you're making your magazine by hand, now is the time to figure out how you'll transfer your content to the page. Will you print it out? Write it directly onto the pages? Paste on photos?

Image titled Make a Magazine Step 10

  • Bind your magazine (handmade only). When your pages are finished, you can bind the magazine so it will stay together. Consider some of the steps in Make a Homemade Book .

  • Start small. It is better to test a small market first, to see how successful the magazine is, than to print too many and blow your budget. Aim to gradually increase readership over time. Thanks Helpful 64 Not Helpful 11
  • Some people say that the magazine is a dead art form. It isn't––people still very much enjoy the pleasure of reading the magazine format. What matters more is the topic––some magazine topics are less interesting to readers than others, so be sure to do your research first. Moreover, some topics might do better digitally than in print, and vice versa––again, do thorough research before deciding which to choose. Thanks Helpful 50 Not Helpful 14
  • You will need a mock-up of the magazine and an advertising rate sheet to present to prospective advertisers. To know what to charge for ads, you will need to know what your cost-per-issue is going to be. Pretty pictures and fancy layouts are only a part of the magazine publishing process. Thanks Helpful 2 Not Helpful 0
  • Most magazines garner a large part of their revenue, (money), from the advertisements you see throughout the publication. Once you have decided what audience your magazine is aimed at, you MUST seek out the companies that want to advertise to that particular audience. (This can be very time-consuming.) Check out the number of ad pages in a given magazine in relation to the number of pages of articles. This will give you an idea of the percentage of advertising you will most likely need to make your publication a success--this advice is from a long-time print ad salesperson.

How to Cite a Magazine Article in APA Style | Format & Examples

Published on February 1, 2021 by Jack Caulfield . Revised on June 16, 2022.

To cite a print magazine article in APA Style , list the author’s name, the publication date, the article title, the magazine name, the volume and issue numbers if available, and the page range of the article.

Generate accurate APA citations with Scribbr

Table of contents, citing online magazine articles, frequently asked questions about apa style citations.

To cite an online magazine article, follow the print format but add the URL at the end. Volume and issue numbers, as well as the page range, may be omitted if they’re not stated anywhere.

More academic magazines may list a DOI , much like a journal article . Always use a DOI if one is available; otherwise, try to find a stable URL on the page (e.g. under a “Share” button).

how to make a magazine article in word

Include the DOI at the very end of the APA reference entry . If you’re using the 6th edition APA guidelines, the DOI is preceded by the label “doi:”. In the 7th edition , the DOI is preceded by ‘https://doi.org/’.

  • 6th edition: doi: 10.1177/0894439316660340
  • 7th edition: https://doi.org/ 10.1177/0894439316660340

APA citation example (7th edition)

When no individual author name is listed, but the source can clearly be attributed to a specific organization—e.g., a press release by a charity, a report by an agency, or a page from a company’s website—use the organization’s name as the author in the reference entry and APA in-text citations .

When no author at all can be determined—e.g. a collaboratively edited wiki or an online article published anonymously—use the title in place of the author. In the in-text citation, put the title in quotation marks if it appears in plain text in the reference list, and in italics if it appears in italics in the reference list. Shorten it if necessary.

When you quote or paraphrase a specific passage from a source, you need to indicate the location of the passage in your APA in-text citation . If there are no page numbers (e.g. when citing a website ) but the text is long, you can instead use section headings, paragraph numbers, or a combination of the two:

(Caulfield, 2019, Linking section, para. 1).

Section headings can be shortened if necessary. Kindle location numbers should not be used in ebook citations , as they are unreliable.

If you are referring to the source as a whole, it’s not necessary to include a page number or other marker.

Paper Magazine, the Oral History: ‘They Were Wide Open’

It started as a chronicler of all things downtown. After success came, it morphed into something else. Now Paper has a new owner — and an uncertain future.

  • July 1, 2023

Paper Magazine made its debut in June 1984. The first issue was a foldout poster with a look as minimalist as the publication’s name, matching the raw aesthetic that reigned over Lower Manhattan in those days.

With its mix of bubbly enthusiasm and Gen-X skepticism, Paper became the scrappy kid sibling to the argumentative Village Voice and the lustrous Interview. Its readers were beautiful people and misfits, insiders and outsiders. Cover subjects included Sandra Bernhard, Naomi Campbell, Deee-lite, Kim Gordon, Cyndi Lauper, Queen Latifah, Chloë Sevigny, Venus Williams and Kim Kardashian.

The brains behind the operation were Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovits, who had met while working at The SoHo Weekly News , an alternative paper that folded in 1982. On their watch Paper tracked all that was young, queer and cool in the culture until 2017, when it was acquired by EntTech Media Group.

In April, EntTech laid off the staff and sought a buyer. A few weeks ago, the media entrepreneur Brian Calle , who had resurrected The Village Voice and LA Weekly, said in an interview for this article that he had struck a deal to bring Paper back. In this oral history, the main players describe the highs and lows of a mostly glorious 40-year run.

David Hershkovits, left, and Kim Hastreiter, both wearing glasses, pose before a wall covered in Paper Magazine covers.

Cyndi Lauper, musician: It was a very creative, inventive time. And there were no rules. You made it up as you went along. You invented yourself. That was such a great part of the ‘80s. It was so inspiring.

Kim Hastreiter, co-founder: SoHo was bubbling. We were right in the middle of it, and David wanted to start a weekly. We tried to raise money for two years, but everyone rejected us. So we ended up just having to do it ourselves.

David Hershkovits, co-founder: We were trying to figure out how we were going to start this thing. I received a poster in the mail for a Kenny Scharf art opening. I was lying in bed and I unfolded it and went, “This could be something that we can make into a magazine. Do it as a poster.” It was visually stunning and different.

Carlo McCormick, writer, editor, 1984-2017: It started off a misshapen and unwieldy oddity in print. It celebrated a time of amateurism that’s probably been lost in New York.

Kim Hastreiter: I sold ads to Danceteria, Patricia Field, the Fun Gallery, the Pyramid. The ads were like $250 each. I would personally have to get the ad and collect the money.

In the early years, Paper was a D.I.Y. operation run mostly out of Ms. Hastreiter’s loft on Lispenard Street in TriBeCa. Richard Weigand, who was then a freelance designer at The New York Times, and Lucy Sisman, a designer and journalist who also worked at The Times, helped give the publication its distinctive look.

David Hershkovits: It was super hard because we didn’t have the equipment. We would go to The Times and produce a lot of the magazine secretly.

Richard Weigand, art director, The New York Times: I said, “Well, since we’re in the building, you might as well come and do it here.” I was stuck there all day anyway.

Todd Eberle, photographer: It was just X-acto blades and this thing called a waxing machine. They would have column lines drawn out, and you would literally paste a piece of text onto that column. And then there would be a freak out, because they noticed a comma was missing. I remember searching around on the floor, trying to find a waxy comma.

Kim Hastreiter: You didn’t sleep. We were so exhausted. Onetime David had the matte knife and he said, “Has anybody seen a reverse apostrophe?”

Richard Pandiscio, then the art director of Condé Nast’s House & Garden, came aboard as the lead designer, working on Paper in his off hours. Soon, ad revenue allowed it to morph from a broadsheet into a perfect-bound magazine.

Kim Hastreiter: My parents lived on 12th Street, near Fairchild Publications. My father called me, hysterical: “They’re throwing away all the desks! I have them for you!” He had all these giant steel desks from the 1940s that weighed a million pounds. But we had to take them because they were free. And that put me over the edge because I had 10 gigantic desks in my house. So we got an office.

Debi Mazar, actress: Kim was on the pulse of everything. I was doing a lot of photo shoots for her, and we just became girlfriends — not lovers, but girlfriends. I was 16 and I was working at the Mudd Club. Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat were my friends. No one was famous yet.

Anna Sui, fashion designer: Kim had this column about things she was obsessed with. It made your month, if you were on that list, because everybody was reading Paper.

Kenny Scharf, artist: Of course, we were aware of Paper. Basically, it was the East Village Eye and Paper, and then some magazines in Japan like Brutus, that were writing about us.

Cyndi Lauper: It wasn’t like other magazines. It really documented the downtown scene.

Sally Singer, head of fashion direction, Amazon: I was a teenager in California and I would seek it out on specialized newsstands. It was a dispatch from a cool world that I didn’t live in.

John Waters, filmmaker: I had a subscription from the day I saw it.

Todd Eberle, photographer: There was downtown and there was uptown. One never went uptown — maybe to the Met. And Paper was the first to kind of start mixing that up. It was a really interesting creative friction that caused sparks.

In 1989, to celebrate its fifth anniversary, the B-52’s posed for the cover. Still, it was more succès d’estime than moneymaker.

Kim Hastreiter: I worked for no salary for, like, eight years. I had to have other jobs.

Maggie McCormick: Sometimes bill collectors would come. We had to hide Kim under the blankets on her bed.

Debi Mazar: I did hair and makeup, and I was good at it. I did a lot of work for Paper. I don’t think I got paid.

Todd Eberle: They didn’t pay photographers. It was all for the glory of being published, which was a big deal then.

Richard Pandiscio, art director, 1985-1990: They gave me a lot of I.O.U.’s, which was cute.

While keeping an eye out for whatever was new in the culture, Paper included politics in the mix, mainly because the AIDS epidemic was ravaging the world the magazine covered. Joe Dolce covered the AIDS crisis; the graffiti artist Futura wrote about video games; and George Wayne documented nightlife.

David Hershkovits: Reagan wouldn’t even say the word AIDS in 1984. And while this whole uproar was going on, Tina Brown put Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan on the cover of Vanity Fair, dancing, as if there was nothing wrong. We took a stand. It wasn’t that popular in those days.

Bethann Hardison, activist, former model: They didn’t try to be diverse, because they naturally were.

Maggie McCormick, office manager, 1985-1993: There were just so many moments at Paper when you knew the world was being changed. I saw one of LL Cool J’s first performances.

Fenton Bailey, producer, former Paper columnist: The vibe was, “Hip-hop is a fad. It’ll come and go.” And that was not the attitude of Paper.

Dennis Dermody, film critic, 1986-2017: I got a call from David Hershkovits. He said, “Listen, we need a film critic, and I hear you go to the movies all the time. We don’t pay.” And I said, “Well, that sweetens the pot.” But who else would let me put out an article called “How to Cook and Eat Macaulay Culkin”?

Christine Muhlke, managing editor, 1994-2000: I got to ask bell hooks if she’d write a column for us. I said, “I can only pay you $100 a month but I promise I won’t change a word.” She said, “Sweetie, that is the nicest, sweetest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. Yes!”

Eileen Myles, poet, activist: I had just run for president, so I had this excessive idea of who I was, and I didn’t know where to go next, and those guys offered me this opportunity to be in their web. I wrote whatever the hell I was thinking about — millennial cults, labor movements, being queer living in the country. They were wide open.

Dennis Dermody: We were doing an April Fool’s issue in 1995, the year Disney was putting out “Pocahontas.” So I wrote this jokey article about how I saw a screening of it and it was depraved, filthy, and was going to get an NC-17 rating. La Stampa, in Rome, put up a big article: “Scandal Rocks Disney!” Disney held a press conference to say it was just a joke. David called me and said, “You’ve got to get down here, because your article is an international incident.” I couldn’t stop laughing.

Paper’s interns included people who went on to success in their fields — the costume designer Sophie de Rakoff, the musician Jake Shears and the New York Magazine deputy editor Alexis Swerdloff.

Kim Hastreiter: If you found someone smart, you dumped everything on them. “Want to write a cover story?” And they’d be in high school.

Susanna Howe, assistant, editor, photographer, 1994-1996: Paper was like magazine grad school, because you were allowed to do so much that you would never be allowed to do at a bigger magazine. When I finally left, to go to Condé Nast, I quickly learned what big-boy magazine culture was: Being treated really badly. They wanted me to pick up their dry cleaning.

Mickey Boardman, intern, office manager, editorial director, 1992-2017: I applied to be an intern in March of 1992. I basically got kicked out of school. I didn’t really like Parsons and they didn’t really care for me, either. But Paper loved me and they loved my crazy outfits. I was a crystal meth addict at the time. I would wear Lilly Pulitzer pants with a lady’s polyester blouse and a chandelier necklace.

Christine Muhlke: Mickey was interviewing this woman for the receptionist job, and a mouse got caught in a trap, and he was killing it with his bare hands while he was interviewing her.

Susanna Howe: I remember that so well. He thought it was OK to take two sticky traps and sandwich the mouse between them and then throw that into the garbage. And you could still hear it squeaking. And he just went back to his desk.

Vikki Tobak, intern, columnist, 1992-1997: Carlo McCormick, one of our editors, had just gotten arrested and put in a Mexican prison. It was like, “We’re not working today. We’re just focused on getting Carlo out of prison.” That was my first week.

Carlo McCormick: I was indeed incarcerated in Mexico, sentenced to 25 years federal time for trafficking in peyote, which, of course, I was not. I was there doing a story on the art of a tribe that used peyote for their sacred visions.

To raise funds for Mr. McCormick’s legal defense, Paper put on a show at Irving Plaza. Karen Finley, Richard Hell, the Psychedelic Furs and Deee-lite were on the bill. (Mr. McCormick was later exonerated in a Mexican court.) As the ‘90s moved along, Paper started featuring mainstream celebrities on its covers. When the magazine wasn’t covering parties, it was hosting them.

David Hershkovits : The ’90s were the most lucrative time for us. There were lots of ads. New York was exploding.

Vikki Tobak: Paper had a lot of power. Walking up to a door, I’d just say, “I’m Vicki from Paper,” and the seas would part.

Hunter Hill, publisher, 1993-2013: We didn’t have Condé Nast expense accounts. What we did have was a lot of cool people. Certain companies understood that and embraced it: Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Adidas.

Pedro Almodóvar, filmmaker: Kim has the best nose to smell emerging talent. When I released “All About My Mother,” she introduced me to two adorable beings, Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal. They were very trendy in the city.

Anna Sui: Somebody would call and say, “Oh, Paper’s having this party on the Manhattan Bridge.” There were hundreds of people, and I remember how exciting it was, just seeing the subway cars go by. It lasted 20 minutes before the police came. You felt like it was something special and renegade.

The media industry fell on hard times in the 21st century, destabilized by the internet. Like other publications Paper looked beyond its core business. It sponsored a concert series, Sounds of Paper. There were also Paper pop-up shops, an art store at Art Basel Miami and brand partnerships.

Alexis Swerdloff, intern, associate editor, executive editor, 2005-2012: It became a little more professionalized at some point. If you had a musician who had an album coming out, it was useful to have their first piece in Paper. I kept a Lady Gaga album on my desk with a Post-it note from a colleague, saying, “You should go check her out.” And I was like, “Pass.” Oops.

Carlo McCormick: The big blow was 9/11. Advertising budgets just dried up.

Kim Hastreiter: The designer Stephen Sprouse called me and said, “Target asked me to do something.” I was like, “What?” This is like in 2002. No one was doing collaborations. I called up all these talented people and said, “Can you design something for under $15 for Target?” Manolo Blahnik did a shoehorn, Isaac Mizrahi designed a mothball that’s a cube, so it didn’t roll, and I ran it at 30 pages with the title “Hey, Target: How About This?” I got a call from Target’s chief marketing officer, Michael Francis. He said, “This is the best thing.” He took me to the Odeon and hired me. I said, “You have to pay Paper.” So I worked for Target until the day I left.

Michael Francis, former chief marketing officer, Target: Kim helped us identify the right partners to engage. Frankly, we were borrowing the equity that they created with Paper. It was cutting-edge.

Carlo McCormick: I used to look down on other publications: “These magazines are way too much about marketing!” Well, Paper eventually became that, as well. It was a little sad and a little embarrassing to me, but I wasn’t the one trying to keep the lights on. So, no judgment.

Paper created its own marketing agency, Extra Extra. And it adapted to the internet, scoring an online hit in 2014 with a Jean-Paul Goude photo shoot featuring Kim Kardashian. In one picture, she is seen balancing a Champagne glass on her derrière. At a time when Paper’s print circulation stood at 155,000, the feature racked up 16 million web views in two days. It also got the attention of the media executive Tom Florio, who had served as the publisher of Vogue during his two-decade tenure at Condé Nast.

John Cafarelli, chief operating officer, 2012-2018: The magazine was still a beachhead of the brand. But in terms of how we made money? We sold access and ideas to some of the biggest companies in the world: Target, American Express, Tiffany & Company.

David Hershkovits: It became a different business because of the internet. And I felt outside the content of the magazine as time went on. I saw the writing on the wall.

Tom Florio, chief executive officer, EntTech: The Kim Kardashian cover shoot cost $10,000. And it took 30 million people to Papermag.com. An Annie Leibovitz shoot at Vogue cost significantly more and only drove 750,000 views to their website.

EntTech bought Paper in 2017. As its identity continued to evolve, the coronavirus pandemic cut into its events business. In June, about a month after EntTech laid off the staff, Paper was sold to Mr. Calle.

Brian Calle: I’m passionate about figuring out ways to create a new model for these legacy institutions, but then also preserve the work itself. I think Paper is perfectly positioned to be the go-to avant-garde agency.

David Hershkovits: Good luck to them. It’s not why we started it. We got our agency thing going so we could put out the magazine. The magazine was always primary.

Kim Hastreiter: I had my knee replaced. The doctor asked me a million health questions. And then, his last thing, he says: “I just want to say thank you. Paper saved my life. I was a young gay, growing up in Indiana, and I found Paper and it made me realize I wasn’t alone.”

What Does the ‘Global South’ Actually Mean?

The United Nations, the World Bank, U.S. President Joe Biden — everyone seems to be talking about the Global South these days. But what, exactly, is it?

More From TIME

What constitutes the global south.

Despite how it sounds, it's not really a geographical term. Many countries included in the Global South are in the northern hemisphere, such as India, China and all of those in the northern half of Africa. Australia and New Zealand, both in the southern hemisphere, are not in the Global South.

Most cite the so-called Brandt Line as the border; a squiggle across the globe running from the north of Mexico, across the top of Africa and the Middle East, looping around India and China before dropping down to encompass most of East Asia while avoiding Japan, Australia and New Zealand. The line was proposed by former German Chancellor Willy Brandt in the 1980s as a visual depiction of the north-south divide based upon per-capita GDP.

“The Global South is a geographical, geopolitical, historical and developmental concept, all at the same time — with exceptions,” says Happymon Jacob, founder of the New Delhi-based Council for Strategic and Defense Research.

Which countries make up the Global South?

It's complicated, and often depends upon who is using the phrase.

Most commonly the term refers to the countries belonging to the Group of 77 at the United Nations, which, confusingly, is today actually a coalition of 134 countries. They're primarily considered developing countries, but also include China — about which there is some debate — and several wealthy Gulf states.

Though the G77 is a group at the U.N., the U.N. itself does not use that as its own definition, according to Rolf Traeger, who is with the U.N.’s trade and development office.

For the U.N., Global South is something of a shortcut to refer to developing countries in general, Traeger said. The U.N. currently lists 181 jurisdictions as developing countries or territories, and 67 jurisdictions as developed, he said.

In January, India's Modi hosted a virtual “Voice of the Global South Summit.” It only included 125 countries, however, with India's regional rivals China and Pakistan among the notable absentees.

Some use different criteria, such as whether a country was previously colonized or whether a nation's per-capita GDP is above $15,000.

There is also a Global North, though the term is not regularly used. That is defined basically as not the Global South.

Should we use the term Global South?

The term Global South first appeared in the 1960s, but took time to gain traction.

Following the end of the Cold War, the terms First World, Second World and Third World started to fall out of favor, partly because with the fall of the Soviet Union the Second World ceased to exist, and also because the use of Third World came to be seen as derogatory.

No matter how you define it, the Global South accounts for such a vast majority of the world's population and broad swath of territory that some argue it's impossible and misleading to use the label.

How can countries like China and India, each with about 1.4 billion people and GDPs of about $18 trillion and $3.4 trillion respectively, be lumped together with the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, with a population a little over 300,000 and a GDP of $984 million, or the southern African nation of Zambia with 19 million people and a GDP of $30 billion?

Some also fret that China, which is assertively seeking to expand its global influence, could misuse the grouping to push its own agenda while giving the impression that it speaks for the majority of the world.

It has been speculated that that was behind the decision in May of the G7 nations — all Global North countries — to refrain from using “Global South” in their final summit communique, even though Kishida himself favors it.

“There is every danger that the Global South will end up becoming a weapon in the hands of revisionist states, like China, who would want to use the voice of the Global South to promote their great power interests,” says Happymon Jacob.

For his part, Modi has stressed the commonality of many issues facing the Global South, such as emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, rising debt, and food and energy security.

Ian Lesser, vice president of the German Marshall Fund and director of its Brussels office, notes that most discomfort with the term comes from Global North countries, and that “Global South” is widely used by the countries that make it up.

Even though the Global South is not a group with a monolithic view or widespread uniformity, he says what's important is that it reflects how the group sees itself.

“There is embedded in it a notion that not all strategies need to be made in the West,” Lesser said.

"For some this is simply a way to assert a degree of historic independence and distance on key issues … and it is affecting the way Europe and the United States think about foreign policy, and the idea that we need to live in a world where not everyone will be on the same page with us on every issue."
