    which expression is correct

    I am working on a in-house newsletter for a company. We want todefine it as a news magazine rather than a newsletter.

    Which one of the below is the correct/best expression?

    XYZ: Housemagazine of ABC employees
    XYZ: Housemagazine for ABC employees
    XYZ: In-house magazine of ABC employees
    XYZ: In-house magazine for ABC employees

    Thanks for your help

    Re: which expression is correct

    Hello Karan,

    Here is 'The French', when I have read your four sentences, I don't understand if your magazine is for ABC employees or if the ABC employees make it.

    I think the second phrases is the best, if your paper is for the ABC employees. One question, what difference do you make between a internal newsletter and a magazine?

    Have a nice day.

    Dear French
    Thanks for your reply.
    The magazine is produced inhouse for the 'ABC' company employees. One of my colleagues argues that it is the magazine 'of the employees' and I am of the view 'for the employees'.

    The differnce is that it is taken a magazine format in content and presentation with nearly 40 pages.
    Appreciate your feedback

    I had the same question. Is the magazine only distributed to employees of ABC, or do they write it and it's freely available?

    If only the employees receive it, then I would say your fourth example is best. In-house magazine sounds much better to me than Housemagazine.

    Re: which expression is correct

    Thanks. yes, it is produced by company's communications dept for the employees. so it is 'for' the employees 'by' the employees.
    In-house magazine for ABC employees sounds better.

    Any one else has any other suggesstions?
    Thanks again.
