Editor & Publisher takes down paywall

Editor & Publisher takes down paywall

Editor & Publisher has taken down its paywall, the U.S. newspaper trade journal announced Friday.

"We have not been big believers in paywalls," Duncan McIntosh, president of Duncan McIntosh Company, Inc., which publishes E&P, stated in the announcement. "Paywalls in name alone connote a psychological negative, which is one reason we have never been big believers. Nielsen had been using one for a number of years, but nothing during the past year has changed our opinion about them. We have removed it to build more traffic and make more of our original content available to our visitors."

The site also announced its new technology director, Adam Tessin, will overhaul its website in the first quarter next year.
