Generally speaking, phone numbers for magazines and similar publications can be found on the page that lists the publishers, editors, advertising staff and contributors of that particular magazine. A publication's website also usually lists a phone number among its contact information.
Finding a successful phone number for a particular magazine depends on the person or department a caller is trying to reach. Numbers connecting the caller with a magazine's subscription service are likely easier to find than, for instance, the direct phone number to an editor or contributing writer. The latter often requires navigating a company's phone system.
Some third-party websites offer a database of phone numbers for various magazines and claim to provide a more direct phone number to a particular entity. By searching for the name of a specific publication, these websites return a phone number along with the hours that phone line is open.
Many magazines employ a host of ways for readers to contact them privately. The most popular social media platforms used by major magazines, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, offer a messenger system. Most publications also publish an email address for those seeking general information about the magazine. Further, some articles in magazines include contact information for that specific writer.
