German term or phrase: Stehordnern
This is a reference to the way files are being collected - is this "standing file"?

neutral  Steffen Walter: I'm not sure whether you got the opposed German terms right - IMHO it's Stehordner vs Hängeordner (suspension files).

magazine file

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.
