The New York Times Launches Electronic Edition on NewsStand. (Internet Publishing Today)


Hane, Paula J., Information Today


The New York Times has announced that it is launching The New York Times Electronic Edition, an exact replica of the newspaper's New York edition that can be downloaded via the Internet to a laptop or desktop PC. NewsStand, Inc., a publishing technology provider in which The New York Times Co. has a minority equity position, will serve as the digital circulation service for the Electronic Edition. Information about subscriptions and single-copy purchases can be obtained at http://www.nytimes.com/lee or http://www.newsstand.com.

"NewsStand's technology allows us to deliver the Times anywhere in the world," said Scott Heekin-Canedy, senior vice president of circulation for The New York Times. "Readers may download an electronic copy of each day's paper to their computer, paying on a subscription or single-copy basis."

The Electronic Edition can be downloaded to computers that have high-speed Internet access and can then be read off-line. In this initial phase, the Electronic Edition is available to broadband users only. Dial-up modem accessibility will be offered soon. Once it is downloaded, the Electronic Edition is available on the user's PC for 7 days.

Readers can download an exact replica of the paper's New York edition, which is normally not available in print outside the New York metropolitan region. Users can perform word searches and zoom in on articles or photos that are automatically resized for easy viewing. There are also several choices for navigating the Electronic Edition. Readers can browse page by page, start with a particular section, or read a complete article by clicking on a link that jumps to the continuation of the article on another page.
