In Europe, digital-only editions are being used by news organisations to innovate and meet the needs of readers who are short on time, but also as additional opportunities for revenue, shows a new report published today (19 April) by Twipe Digital Publishing.
The paper defines digital-only editions as "bundles of finite content, published via digital channels with a certain frequency, belonging to a series, and with no counterpart in print containing the same content".
The aim of the research was to identify what successful editions have in common, as well as publishers' motivations for investing in them.
Twipe also identified some best practices for creating digital-only bundles by interviewing eight European publishers who have developed such products: Handelsblatt, Diario de Navarra, Le Monde, Die Welt, Ouest-France, The Economist, The Independent, and Tamedia.
