Newspapers Back to Our Lives
We reached the moment where periodicals became practically available only in libraries. From the memories of our parents, grandparents, we know that earlier newspapers and magazines were subscribed and delivered practically in every house, in every family. Will those times return? Maybe! At least, the recent events are encouraging.
What happened? There are many reasons. One of the main, in our opinion, is the development of Internet technologies. Modern information sites and social networks sometimes replace not only printed newspapers and magazines, but also such mass media as radio and television. Does this mean the sunset of periodicals era? The most authoritative experts assure that «this is not the end of newspapers and magazines», it's just the time of their transition to new technologies, with which they will be distributed not in print - expensive version, but in less expensive and convenient - electronic.
In recent years, many different platforms have appeared on the Internet - «readers» which make it possible to distribute and read electronic versions of newspapers and magazines convenient for everyone. The leader in this market is rightly considered the world-wide Internet newsstand Press Reader which has been operating since 2013. Over time, the resource has become the standard for the distribution of electronic news content (newspapers and magazines) in more than 10 thousand libraries around the world. The portal offers licensed news from most of the world's publications, both in their original printed version with all pages and in the innovative Smart Flow mode where articles are presented in a form that is optimal for reading from the screen of your gadget.
For four years of work, the Press Reader has turned into the world's largest «kiosk» of the daily press, in which full digital copies of more than 5 thousand newspapers and magazines from 100 countries in 60 languages are presented. It is essential that the number of publications in it is constantly expanding.
Thus, in mid-September 2017 the list of the countries, the press of which is represented in the «kiosk», was supplemented by one more - Uzbekistan. For the first time on this platform there were publications published in the Uzbek language. In addition, here are publications of Uzbekistan which tell about our country published in other languages. Among them, the products of the Uzbekistan Today news agency: the same-named information-analytical weekly published in Russian and English. In total, our country is represented on the Press Reader by ten editions.
The editions of many Uzbek media consider the Internet kiosk www. pressreader.com as a reliable partner, allowing work in accordance with the requirements of the times.
For 11 years of work in the media market, the Uzbekistan Today weekly disseminated through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan in 45 countries, has shaped the image of the country's business card. On the pages of the newspaper you can find information and analytical materials on the most actual and pressing topics in the field of politics and international relations, economy and finance, social sphere, culture and sports.
The development of the weekly will be continued. To do this, in the near future the publication intends to develop cooperation with Internet kiosks and Press Reader became the first one with whom we established cooperation. Until the end of the year, Uzbekistan Today (in Russian and English) will be published both in the usual, printed format, and in electronic format. And since the new year, we plan to count on the issue of the newspaper only in digital PDF format.
However Uzbek-lovers of reading newspapers and magazines only have to evaluate all the amenities that the Press Reader provides.
