Following 21 years as the major Australian forests and timber industry magazine and in line with current publishing trends, Australian Forests & Timber News is now available in both print and online on the forest and timber industries’ leading web portal, www.timberbiz.com.au.
Readers will now have the convenience of being able to read Australian Forests & Timber News in a PDF format online as well as in print. The online version will allow readers to view digital edition pages, individual stories and advertisements with zoom options.
At the same time the company’s sister industry Australian Timberman, now published for over 30 years, will also be made available in both print and digital formats.
Publisher Hartley Higgins said that following research into a variety of online publishing programs, it had been decided to use the ISSUU program which offers ease of navigation and the ability to link through to websites that are stated within the text.
“This is an exciting development where links to supplier websites and key industry organisations means our readers will have even greater access to information to assist them with their daily business needs”, Mr Higgins said.
Initially the online version will be offered free as an introductory offer and then revert to being available exclusively to subscribers and industry recipients using a supplied security code.
Mr Higgins said that the digital editions would be made available as the publication is going to print, up to a week before the print version is received in mail boxes.
“As a new offering we will be seeking feedback from readers after viewing their issue”, he added.
