I know Bulletin is/has been used for journal-type publications (BSL, Bulletin de la Societé Linguistique [de Paris/France?] ), but in my US-oriented (academic) experience, "bulletin" is more like a shortish list of announcements; journals are where you get the lengthy, often impenetrable, prose masterpieces.
