Magazines and journals
Complete collections of magazines and journals are stuff that is often provided by enthusiasts ready for an easy bulk upload to archive.org. Many (private) ebook/magazines trackers exist but they're not always useful.
It can be useful to archive magazines on the Internet Archive, especially if they're out of commerce and/or their parent company has gone bankrupt. However, active rightsholders tend to quickly take down materials on the Internet Archive: if something is popular, it was probably already uploaded and taken down; double check previous uploads before you upload stuff taken elsewhere.
- Readcomiconline claims to have complete runs of almost 25k titles.
Can be checked for torrents of PDF files and other "ebooks" formats:
https://torrentproject.se/?orderby=sizeD&s=pdf&filter=3000 is an interesting and tidy meta-indexer. https://alphareign.se/?query=&category=ebook (DHT indexer) has some more listing, but no functioning sort by size as of 2017-02.
