The collection, which currently features two years’ worth of issues, will grow with each new issue published and is accessible to subscribers old and new across web, iOS and Android devices.
Since 1909, The Progressive has sought to amplify voices of dissent and those under-represented in the mainstream, with a goal of championing grassroots progressive politics, says Exact Editions. The bi-monthly magazine publishes content on national politics, culture, and events including US foreign policy, and can count such prominent writers as Wendell Berry, Edwidge Danticat and Barbara Ehrenreich among its contributors.
The new digital archive is enhanced, says the company, by the streamlined tools offered by the Exact Editions platform; linked contents pages ensure easy navigation, while the advanced Boolean search function allows readers to search individual issues or the complete collection for keywords or topics. Institutional access is authenticated by IP-range to facilitate instant reading for students and staff on campus, while remote access options support research conducted at home or on-the-go.
Publisher Norman Stockwell remarked: “It’s wonderful to have a digital edition that is completely faithful to the print edition and showcases our striking front covers so well. The navigational features, and the search function in particular, really enhance readers’ interactivity and make it a compelling product.”
Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, commented: “The Progressive’s prestigious reputation and rich history makes the modern archive a very appealing resource to institutions all over the world, and we’re thrilled to be helping the magazine reach new markets.”
