    I don't know any good magazine scanners, but they might not be necessary if you can find them in premium databases like:

    Code:
    http://ebscohost.com
    
    This is what I use to find magazine issues, newspapers, other periodicals all in full text. Most libraries provide access to these databases for free. Pretty awesome. You could look into that.
