Gazette

Another term for a newspaper would be gazette. Newspapers have been referred to as gazettes since the 1600s, each publication depending on preference. For governments, the word gazette denotes public journals that contain official documents and chief data. These are critical for governments when they need all of their information in a central location.

When using the word gazette as a verb, it actually refers to publishing information in a gazette itself. It is a versatile term that covers both the publication itself, as well as the action.
