Kew Launches Complete Digital Archive

Royal Botanic Gardens is launching the full digital archive of its official magazine Kew.

Kew Launches Complete Digital Archive

Developed in partnership with digital publishing company Exact Editions, the digital edition of the publication is now available across web, iOS and Android platforms.

First published in 1991, Kew pulls together a mix of articles about the world famous gardens at Kew and Wakehurst. Published three time a year, each issue of the membership magazine brings readers features that focus on plants and the people who work with them, covering such a wide range of subjects as horticulture, education, conservation, art and history. The high-quality editorial and contribution of talented photographers render the beautiful magazine a well-respected ambassador for the Royal Botanic Gardens, says Exact Editions.

Kew is available for institutions and individual readers from around the world to purchase with cross-platform digital access. The archive of back issues, as well as all the latest content, benefits from the advanced search function across the web and mobile devices. Every article, page and issue can be searched, shared and cited.

Christina Harrison, editor of Kew, said about the archive: “We’re thrilled to be working with Exact Editions on this exciting launch. Offering the whole archive digitally will mean that new and existing members and subscribers can explore past issues and discover the history of these beautiful gardens.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, said about the launch: “The beautiful features and photography in the Kew archive look wonderful in digital format and we’re delighted to be partnering with the Royal Botanic Gardens to produce it. It will undoubtedly be a valuable resource for individuals and institutions alike, whether for leisurely browsing or educational study.”
