;login: is a long-running bi-monthly technical journal published by the USENIX Association, focusing on the UNIX operating system. It was founded by Mel Ferentz in 1975 as UNIX News, changing its name to ;login: in 1978.[1]

The leading semicolon is a reference to the appearance of the login prompt of early versions of UNIX, where an escape code specific to the Teletype model 37 computer terminal would appear as a semicolon on other models of terminal.[2]
