This Week in Publishing



Welcome! This week our roundup of interesting and noteworthy publishing industry stories focuses on digital-first publishing strategies, the state of the magazine market, publishers' settlement with Google, and more.

PUBLISHING INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK:

  • On GigaOM this week, Mathew Ingram argues that embracing a "digital first" strategy isn't just an option for publishers—it's necessary for their survival.
  • According to the MPA, new data points to a strong magazine market, when digital editions are factored in along with print. Figures show a 57% increase in the number of brands advertising in tablet, online, and print magazines since 2010, as well as 4% growth in the combined tablet and print audience in the past year.
  • According to Digiday, Atlantic Media's new business-focused, "digitally native" publication is getting positive reviews among digital designers. In addition to its use of responsive design, Quartz has broken the mold by doing away with a home page, and having stories appear in a continuous scroll.
  • Under a settlement reached last week between book publishers and Google, publishers can choose whether they will let Google digitize their out-of-print books that are still under copyright. Those that do will share in revenue from Google’s sale of the e-books, and receive digitized copies for their own use.
