Parazine is a tool that allows you to recontextualize existing academic content. It scrapes the content from an online academic journal of your choice and allows you to create a ‘zine’ from this content. You, the source journal and the tool all provide certain inputs. The resulting publication needs to be printed to be readable. You can make a publication for yourself, but also consider creating it for others (e.g. as a reader).
