No. You'd have to say "newspapers and magazines."
An "edition" is one particular instance of a paper or magazine. Like the Sunday paper here. They print an early edition you can buy on Saturday. Then they print the regular "final" edition on Sunday.
If you have a friend who writes for newspapers and magazines, you have to say that.

A term that can be used for both a newspaper and a magazine?
There is no specific word for that.
The Axel Springer company is the largest publishing house in Europe. It has more than 230 newspapers and magazines...
Axel Springer AG - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You should know by now that literal translation rarely works. Are you really surprised?
