New Internationalist announces launch of digital archive

New Internationalist, the independent publication dedicated to “socially conscious” journalism and publishing, has announced the launch of the magazine’s complete digital archive.

Since the first published issue in 1973, New Internationalist has pioneered truly global journalism that exposes human and environmental injustice. Grassroots, global voices and thoroughly researched infographics bring stories to life and provide fresh perspectives on complex issues, say the publishers. With the completion of this comprehensive archive digitisation project, the publication has worked in partnership with Exact Editions to ensure that every issue of the complete historical backfile is available to subscribers at the touch of the button, wherever they may be.

The newly launched archive displays the magazine’s history as an easy-to-use searchable database, so that over 500 issues of the publication are instantly available to subscribers across web, iOS and Android platforms. Every issue is displayed as it would have been printed originally, and enhanced with page links and search to allow readers, researchers and writers to easily access all the content throughout the archive.

Subscriptions to the New Internationalist with full access to the archive are available for academic and research institutions. Full IP authenticated access is available so that each article of every issue can be browsed with unlimited usage on the full range of digital platforms.

Amanda Synnott, Marketing Director at New Internationalist said of the digital launch: “We are delighted to be able to offer our subscribers full access to the digital archive. We know that our back issues are highly valued for research and reference, as well as general reading. This archive project gives fascinating insights into the political and environmental events of the last four decades, and shows off the New Internationalist’s knack for reporting on issues of major global concern, such as our risky banking system and climate change, long before they became of interest to the mainstream media.”

Exact Editions’ Managing Director Daryl Rayner said: “The New Internationalist archive looks brilliant and is a stunning resource whether viewed via the website or on an iPad. Subscribers to the magazine, individuals and institutions alike, will relish having access to this wonderful database of issues.”
