German term or phrase:Stehordnern
This is a reference to the way files are being collected - is this "standing file"?
Explanation: I'd steer clear of magazine file - I'm not sure it means anything to English ears.
The picture that I found of a Stehordner in an on-line catalogue at http://www.spreemuehle.de/pages/archiv_3.html#stehordner is what I would call a magazine file - it's like a box with a cutaway front; libraries often use them for magazines and journals. In fact I have an unopened pack of them in my cupboard, in multi-lingual packaging that says Magazine Files/Stehsammler on it.
