A partwork is a magazine publishing format which is designed to market an ongoing collection to the public, based on a particular subject.

Usually geared to establish a strong subscriber base, partworks are typically released on a weekly, fortnightly, or a monthly basis, and commonly require the purchase of more than one hundred issues to complete the collection. In the UK and Japan in particular, partworks are among the most popular types of magazines. [1]

A number of partwork are commonly published and can include:

  • A reference archive, with each issue solely consisting of a magazine.
  • A DVD collection, with each issue including a DVD of the relevant presentation.
  • A model-building series, with individual issues containing parts which eventually combine to create a single, complete model.
  • A collectible models collection, with each issue including a finished, standalone model.
