You could call it an application journal or a methodology journal. But
best practices sounds good, too.

Subject: Type of documentation?
I am trying to come up with a good name for the type of documentation I have
been working on lately, but I'm not getting very far. Here's a description
of it.

Where our release documentation has a narrow focus on specific products,
this documentation has a wide focus on tasks or processes that span multiple
products. It is published independently of product releases, to the company
knowledgebase and/or online magazine. There is a possibility it could be
published in trade magazines. This type of documentation is heavily informed
by research into best practices, standards, the existing market, feedfback
from consultants in the field, and such.

Our manager calls this documentation "best practices," but it's more than
that. What would you call it?
