With over 4m readers in almost every country and a reputation for insightful analysis and opinion on every aspect of world events,
The Economist is one of the most widely recognised and well-read current affairs publications. The weekly paper has sections about each region of the world, plus science and technology, books and arts, and the weekly obituary. The website (www.economist.com) is also accessible through mobile devices including the iPhone and iPad.
Economist readers are Ideas People, for whom The Economist offers the opportunity to fuel their own thinking; challenge their opinions on events; and satisfy their curiosity about the world.
The Economist's special reports are focused editorial reports offering readers in-depth, forward-looking analysis of a particular topic. They offer advertisers the opportunity to maximise impact with a long-lasting advertisement in a medium which is kept for reference. Research demonstrates that advertisements in editorial special report sections are more likely to be seen and read (MediaPlus Research Ltd 2003).
Advertising in a special report section not only increases the attention readers pay to advertisements but also increases the number of readers exposed to that advertising. Special reports cause an uplift in circulation as less regular readers of The Economist buy that special issue to read about a topic of definite interest to them.
