Biweekly means twice a week or every other week.[1][2] This causes ambiguity when the term is used. As a result, in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, the term biweekly is commonly restricted to one meaning, twice a week, and fortnightly is used when referring to something that occurs once every two weeks.

In the US, a biweekly publication is issued every two weeks and a bimonthly publication is issued every two months.
