Such activities go by many names these days: multi-channel publishing, apps publishing, mobile publishing, and so forth. However, what all these venues for content delivery have in common is two things: the work is publishing, and the venue is digital. Thus, the name and the scope of the Digital Publishing Report.

In this newsletter we talk about the technology, techniques, strategies, and plans publishers are using to develop their digital publishing efforts. We cover e-books, apps, mobile, and more–not just the how, but also the why. When we talk about publishing, by the way, we mean more than books, magazines, and newspapers. We also mean catalogs, corporate publishing, and even publishing for education and training.
