    starting from the 58th issue

    Are these sentences correct:


    1) The interview was carried out in instalments, which were published in our magazine starting from the 58th issue.

    2) The interview was published in instalments in our magazine, starting from the 58th issue.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I'd say 'starting with'.

    Re: starting from the 58th issue

    #1 raises my eyebrows.

    First, do you intend to mean that the interview was done a small piece at a time? #2 makes more sense to me; the interview was long but conducted in one session (breaks notwithstanding), but it was broken down and published in pieces (installments).

    Second, even if the interview was done bit by bit over different sessions, "installments" isn't working for me. A very simple replacement might be "parts", or "sessions". I'd prefer something like, "...carried out over several separate sessions".

    Re: starting from the 58th issue

    Thank you all very much,

    Yes, in '1', the interview was done in a number of sessions. The interview I was thinking of took over ten hours actually. Each session lasted about an hour and a half. Think of interviews that are turned into books.

    '2' does not say that and one would probably assume that it was a long interview, although nothing indicates that it was.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Okay, got it. I'm going to stop short of saying it is wrong, but I really don't find "installments" a good fit for what you describe for the interviews. You can publish it - online or in books - in installments. There is a sense of giving or presenting about this word that doesn't fit, in my opinion, with conducting interviews.

    1) The interview was carried out in instalments a few sessions, which were published in our magazine starting from the 58th issue. - The interview and publishing(implied) were done in parts.

    2) The interview was published in instalments in our magazine, starting from the 58th issue. - The interview could be done in one session whereas the publishing was done in parts.
