A government gazette
(also known as official gazette
, official journal
, official newspaper
, official monitor
or official bulletin
) is a periodical
publication that has been authorised to publish public or legal notices. It is usually established by statute
or official action and publication of notices within it, whether by the government or a private party, is usually considered sufficient to comply with legal requirements for public notice.
The Federal Register
is the official publication of the United States government for publishing presidential decrees and the like for public notice.
Gazettes are published either in print, electronically, or both.
Publication within privately owned periodicals
In some jurisdictions, privately owned newspapers may also register with the public authorities in order to publish public and legal notices.
Likewise, a private newspaper may be designated by the courts
for publication of legal notices. These are referred to as "legally adjudicated newspapers".
