Magazine like EH!, MotorTrader and many others are all local titles that are very much demanded and popular. Most local titles are cheaper in price if purchased as compared to the international titles. Local titles can be found in almost all newsstands in around Malaysia.
International publications are usually more expensive and would be title that you might have heard before. These are like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, FHM and Newman which are typically magazines that are started overseas and then brought into Malaysia to provide a more localised version catered to the Malaysian readers. Companies who bring in these titles usually pay for a franchising fee to the original publisher and hence the content might sometimes be brought in from overseas as well.
Periodicals and journals
These are typically industry specific publications that provide insights and recent developments into the various disciplines. For example the medical journals are usually published every quarter providing updates on recent research and developments on the medical industry. Doctors, medical practitioners and members of the medicine faculty will usually read these journals as well as publish their work if they have a research breakthrough.
