Reading online newspapers and magazines

An online magazine is, quite simply, an electronic version of a print magazine accessed through an online service like CompuServe or the Internet. But there are different types of online magazines.

Some online magazines offer the complete contents (sans ads) of their print versions; others are just forums (message sections and file libraries); others are online research databases that incorporate articles from dozens of publications. Still others forgo magazine content altogether, instead estab­lishing services through CompuServe—services like subscription sales and a direct message line to the editorial staff. These are just some of the maga­zines you can find on CompuServe (with their GO words):

TIP

Many magazines encourage the use of e-mail for submissions and letters to the editor. If a magazine lists an e-mail address (normally some­where near the letters column), you can use CompuServe Mail instead of snail mail (U.S. Post Office mail) to make your ideas known to the editor.
