Electronics Magazine (1930-1966)

342 issues (not complete)

Electronics was an American trade journal that covered the radio industry and its later spin-offs in the mid-to-late 20th century. Its first issue was dated in April 1930. The periodical was published under the title Electronics until 1984, when it changed temporarily to the new title ElectronicsWeek, but then reverted again to the original title Electronics in 1985. The ISSN for the corresponding periods are: ISSN 0013-5070 for the 1930–1984 issues, ISSN 0748-3252 for the 1984–1985 issues with title ElectronicsWeek, and ISSN 0883-4989 for the 1985–1995 issues. It was published by McGraw-Hill until 1988, when it was sold to the Dutch company VNU. VNU sold its American electronics magazines to Penton Publishing the next year.

Generally a monthly magazine, its frequency and page count varied with the state of the industry, until its end in 1995. More than its principal rival Electronic News, it balanced its appeal to managerial and technical interests (at the time of its 1992 makeover, it described itself as a magazine for managers). The magazine was best known for publishing the April 19, 1965 article by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, in which he outlined what came to be known as Moore's Law.
