1580s, "place for storing goods, especially military ammunition," from Middle French magasin "warehouse, depot, store" (15c.), from Italian magazzino, from Arabic makhazin, plural of makhzan "storehouse" (source of Spanish almacén "warehouse, magazine"), from khazana "to store up." The original sense is almost obsolete; meaning "periodical journal" dates from the publication of the first one, "Gentleman's Magazine," in 1731, which was so called from earlier use of the word for a printed list of military stores and information, or in a figurative sense, from the publication being a "storehouse" of information.
n. 1 A periodical publication, generally consisting of sheets of paper folded in half and stapled at fold. 2 An ammunition storehouse. 3 A chamber in a firearm enabling multiple rounds of ammunition to be fed into the firearm. 4 A reservoir or supply chamber for a stove, battery, camera, typesetting machine, or other apparatus. 5 (context dated English) A country or district especially rich in natural products. 6 (context dated English) A city viewed as a marketing center. 7 (context dated English) A store, or shop, where goods are kept for sale.

Magazines are publications, usually periodical publications, that are printed or electronically published (the online versions are called online magazines. Most publishers now provide digital verions of their print magazine titles through various online services for a fee.) They are generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content. They are generally financed by advertising, by a purchase price, by prepaid subscriptions, or a combination of the three. At its root, the word "magazine" refers to a collection or storage location. In the case of written publication, it is a collection of written articles. This explains why magazine publications share the word root with gunpowder magazines, artillery magazines, firearms magazines, and, in various languages although not English, retail stores such as department stores.
Magazine were an English post-punk band active from 1977 to 1981, then again from 2009 to 2011. The band was formed by Howard Devoto after leaving punk band Buzzcocks in early 1977. Devoto had decided to create a more progressive and less "traditional" rock band.
Magazine reunited in 2009 for a UK tour, with almost all the remaining members of the "classic" lineup, with the exception of guitarist John McGeoch, who died in 2004. He was replaced by Noko, who had played with Devoto in Luxuria. Magazine released an album of new material, No Thyself, in October 2011, followed by a short UK tour.

The detachable magazine is often referred to as a clip, although this is technically inaccurate.
