Periodicals by circulation

The list of Adventist periodicals by circulation may give some indication of notability, but this criterion alone does not measure the impact of a magazine, and gift subscriptions and other freely distributed magazines might be expected to have an inflated circulation. As an example, one may assume that academic journals have more influence than their lower circulations suggest.

Items here are also listed by location below. Many older issues of these periodicals can be viewed online at the Adventist Archives
