The oldest scientific journal in the world is 358 years old.  Newton, Darwin and Hawking published it

From a document of the Royal Society dated March 11, 1665, we learn that the Society has recommended that “Philosophical Transactions be prepared by Mr. Oldenburg and published every first Monday in the month, provided that the publisher has sufficient material and that each issue is approved by the Council of the Society after being reviewed by several Oldenburg appears to have entered into an agreement with the Royal Society by which he retained any profits from the publication of the journal.

The first ever scientific journal failed to produce coconuts for its maker, and she barely earned enough to pay the rent for a house. By his death in 1677, Oldenburg had published 136 issues of Philosophical Transactions. As you can easily see, the magazine was published very regularly, almost every month.
