18 January 2017: Added to the Encyclopedia of Trotskyism On-Line’s Listing of Trotskyist Periodicals & Journals are a series of Trotskyist newspapers spanning the last several decades. Here is a consolidated list of the ones we've added (it includes one of the ones mentioned a few days ago) in the last few weeks:

Socialist Appeal (1941–1948) London. Organ of the Workers International League, one of two Trotskyist organisations in Britain during WWII and shortly therafter. Unlike the other group, the Revolutionary Socialist League, this one remained unaffiliated to the Fourth International. Lead by Gerry Healy, among others.
Keep Left (1964-1985) London. Keep Left was the newspaper of the youth organized in support of the Socialist Labour League in Britain operating, initially, inside the Labour Party. In 1965, the SLL ceased doing entry work in the Labour Party. Keep Left them became the paper of the SLL organized you, the Young Socialists. It ceased publication in 1985.
The Newsletter (1956–1969) London: Published by the Socialist Labour League (Gerry Healy, Mike Banda etc.) from 1956 until 1969, when it was replaced by the daily Workers Press. Initially weekly, then bi-weekly. Published as a broadsheet for most of its existence.
Socialist Action (1976–1982) London. This newspaper was published by the League for Socialist Action in Britain starting in 1976. It consisted of a group of members of the reunified Fourth International who split from the International Marxist Group in that year in support of the American Socialist Workers Party's tendency in the International. It engaged in entrism in the Labour Party in the period after 1976, and merged again with the International Marxist Group in 1982.
Socialist Action (1983–1987) London. Journal of the Socialist Action group, affiliated to the United Secretariat of the Fourth International. Grew out of splits in the International Marxist Group. Eventually became staff and advisors for London mayor Ken Livingston.
Socialist Outlook (1948–1954) London. This newspaper was published by the Socialist Fellowship from December 1948 until 1954. For much of that period, it was edited by John Lawrence and was formally published by an association of left wing members of the Labour Party. The paper's editorial policy was controlled by a group around Gerry Healy. This Trotskyist group was privately known as The Club. Socialist Outlook was banned by the Labour Party's National Executive Committee in late 1954 and soon expired. The Club moved to selling Tribune instead.
Socialist Outlook (1987–1991) London. The Socialist Group which was formed by Alan Thornett, John Lister and others who had been in the Workers Socialist League. After a period of working together with the former members of the International Marxist Group organized into the International Group, and an extended fusion process, the two groups came together to form the International Socialist Group and established the magazine Socialist Outlook.
