The number and use of online newspapers has increased tremendously since the first ones appeared around 1995. Since that time, scholarly and practical thinking about the significance of this new phenomenon has gone through the inevitable stages of euphoria and doom. It is only in the last few years that we have entered a more temperate period, in which publishers gradually work towards finding the appropriate place for online newspapers in news markets. The time is ripe for a comprehensive assessment of how online newspapers are changing newspaper markets in Europe. This book discusses their impact on news and newspaper markets in 18 countries in Europe. The countries covered include both small and large countries, from Eastern and Western Europe.
