Article: The Economist Archive
In a joint project between Gale - part of Cengage Learning - and the Economist, more than 160 years of articles from the Economist are set to become available online with the launch of The Economist Historical Archive 1843-2003. The archive will contain more than 600,000 pages of the weekly magazine's reporting and analysis.
"The Economist Historical Archive is more than a database - it is a remarkable record of the most significant world events over the past 160 years through the unbiased, probing eyes of the Economist," said John Micklethwait, the magazine's editor-in-chief.
The magazine, which has a worldwide print circulation of more than 1.2m, hopes to target educational institutions, public libraries, government organisations, corporations and financial institutions.
Preview trials of the archive are available and the full archive will be available via subscription in December.
Its website, Economist.com offers readers free access to content under one year old.
