PPA Scotland

Home to the innovative businesses that power Scotland's thriving professional publishing sector.


Magazine publishing in Scotland goes back a long way. The world’s oldest surviving consumer magazine – The Scots Magazine – was launched in Edinburgh on 9 February 1739 and is still going strong, now owned by DC Thomson. From medicine to music, from golf to floral art, from education to fishing, Scotland’s magazine publishing industry is flourishing and the leading companies are members of PPA.
