A publication is a database object that identifies the data that is to be synchronized. A publication consists of articles, which are subsets of a table's columns, rows, or both. Each publication can contain one or more entire tables, or partial tables consisting of selected rows and columns. In a single publication, no table can be included in more than one article.
