News­pa­pers Back to Our Lives

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - SOCIAL ORBIT - San­jar An­varov

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. In it, along with do­mes­tic pub­li­ca­tions, you can ac­cess 5 thou­sand pub­li­ca­tions from dif­fer­ent coun­tries of the world, and there­fore, to an even greater flow of in­for­ma­tion and au­thor­i­ta­tive opin­ions that can be trusted. In the col­lec­tion www.pressreader. com it can be found al­most all known and pop­u­lar pub­li­ca­tions in the world, dis­cover new names of au­thors and ex­perts, re­porters and pho­to­jour­nal­ists. It is also con­ve­nient that you can use full dig­i­tal copies of printed edi­tions and their adapted ver­sions, the pro­gram al­lows you to read texts in trans­la­tion, lis­ten to au­dio ver­sions and save them on dif­fer­ent de­vices. All is­sues of pub­li­ca­tions in­ter­ested in read­ers will be avail­able off­line.

In ad­di­tion, the Press Reader helps mil­lions of peo­ple around the world not only to read their fa­vorite news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines with­out re­stric­tions, dis­cover new ar­ti­cles and edi­tions of friends with the same in­ter­ests, but also to chat and dis­cuss news, share their thoughts and opin­ions, to talk about the im­por­tance and ur­gency, an­a­lyze, com­ment and support the opin­ions of oth­ers. This is fa­cil­i­tated by the in­te­gra­tion of the plat­form with Twit­ter, Face­book, Google+. cor­re­spon­dence by e-mail is also con­ve­nient.
