The Andover Review was a religious and theological periodical that saw publication from 1884 to 1893. It was established by the faculty of the Andover Theological Seminary, following the relocation of Bibliotheca Sacra's publishing quarters to Oberlin, Ohio. The Andover Review was published monthly until its last year of operation when it transitioned to a bi-monthly format.

The publication defined itself as an advocate for “thoroughly progressive orthodoxy,” and its content was primarily contributed by the faculty members of the Andover Theological Seminary. The very first issue of the Andover Review is considered the most significant, as it established the journal's guiding principle—a modern and liberal view towards religion. This liberal orientation would later incite the “Andover trials,” a series of events that brought the Andover Review its greatest renown. These trials traced the evolution of the church from older Calvinistic beliefs to more contemporary religious views. Not long after the culmination of these trials, the Andover Review ceased its publication.

The Analectic Magazine was a publication active from 1813 to 1820, published in Philadelphia. This magazine offered a variety of content, including original reviews, biographies, analytical abstracts of new publications, translations from French journals, and selections from esteemed British reviews.

However, it ceased publication in 1820 due to the ill health of its editor, James Maxwell.
