Newspaper Sizes

To create an authentic newspaper I want the sizes of my work to be realistic. I looked at the sizes of three newspapers. These included The Journal, a National Broadsheet, The Shields Gazette and Sunderland Echo, both local newspapers.
The Sizes for the newspapers are as follow, these measurements are when the magazine is open.

The Journal
Width 59.7cm
Height 36cm

Shields Gazette
Width 58.1cm
Height 37cm

Sunderland Echo
Width 58.1cm
Height 36.9cm
I noticed that both the local newspapers are of similar size and there is only a slight difference in the height of the newspaper. That is why I will make the size of my magazine 58.1cmx37cm so it follows the same convention of pre existing local newspapers.
