Description
  • A biweekly event occurs every two weeks. While "biweekly" is colloquially used, sometimes, to mean twice a week, it should only be used to mean every two weeks to ensure consistency of data. Events that occur twice a week should use "semi-weekly" instead.
  • Biweekly may refer to an event that occurs either twice weekly or once every two weeks. The usage "every two weeks" is more common, but both usages are common and may lead to ambiguity. There are 52 full weeks in a year of 12 months, making for a possible 26 or 104 biweekly events in a year. This is a greater number than if such events were held twice a month, because most months have more than four weeks. In the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, the term fortnightly is more commonly used for an event that occurs every two weeks.
