North American political magazine The Progressive has launched a digital archive of issues on the Exact Editions platform.
The collection incorporates issues from the previous two years and is accessible to subscribers via the web and mobile devices running iOS and Android.
Since 1909, bi-monthly magazine The Progressive has sought to amplify voices of dissent and those under-represented in the mainstream, with a goal of championing grassroots progressive politics. It counts such prominent writers as Wendell Berry, Edwidge Danticat and Barbara Ehrenreich among its contributors.
Using the Exact Editions platform, subscribers are provided with linked contents pages for 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 make the archive available to students and staff on campus.
Publisher Norman Stockwell said: “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, added: “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.”
