1. The act or process of publishing printed matter.
2. An issue of printed material offered for sale or distribution.
3. Communication of information to the public.

To publish is to make content available to the public. While specific use of the term may vary among countries, it is usually applied to text, images, or other audio-visual content on any medium, including paper (newspapers, magazines, catalogs, etc.) or electronic publishing forms such as websites, e-books, Compact Discs and MP3s. The word publication means the act of publishing, and also refers to any copies.
For my publication I would like to make a newspaper, I've been looking at some potential design ideas and like the following:
I like the idea of creating my publication in this format, I think it will work well for the whole manifesto theme and if its an inspiration read there wouldn't be a better format of getting it out in the open for the audience.

Types of publications:
Written publications:
-Conference papers -Research reports -Magazines & Newspaper article -Journal article -Book -Encyclopaedia
Online publications:
-Forums -Blogs -E-books -Personal website -Corporate & Government websites -Tutorials
Publishing is the process of production and dissemination of literature or information — the activity of making information available to the general public. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning: originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display the content for the same.
Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works such as books (the "book trade") and newspapers. With the advent of digital information systems and the Internet, the scope of publishing has expanded to include electronic resources, such as the electronic versions of books and periodicals, as well as micropublishing, websites, blogs, video game publishers and the like.
Publishing includes the stages of the development, acquisition, copyediting, graphic design, production – printing (and its electronic equivalents), and marketing and distribution of newspapers, magazines, books, literary works, musical works,software and other works dealing with information, including the electronic media.
