Digest-sized is one of several standard sizes for print fanzines. It is approximately 5½ x 8¼ inches for US publishers A5 for European and Australian publishers, with slight variations. In zine flyers it is sometimes referred to simply as a 'digest'.

One fan says why she likes the size: "[It's a]... easy to transport size. I love these little... 'zinelets, because I can stuff them in a bag to take wherever and usually the covers are innocuous so I don't have to worry about 'peepers'!" [1]
