From observing other students create magazines in the library, it seems like those who were most successful first gathered all the information they needed and, once finished with researching, arranged their articles in Microsoft Publisher, Word, or Google Docs (whatever works for your group) last.

Recommended databases and websites are listed below to assist you with this project. Of course, you may find other online sources with useful information, but be sure to check the website for accuracy, authority, currency, objectivity, and proper coverage. If you're not sure what those five characteristics mean, then read this!
