Paper Industry Magazines Merge
RISI’s Paper & Pulp titles to become one international edition.
RISI, which covers the forest products industry, is merging its Pulp & Paper and Pulp and Paper International print magazines. The new publication, which is set to launch in January, will take the name Pulp & Paper International and will have a global circulation of 30,000.
“With ongoing globalization in the pulp and paper industry and the audience’s need to know what’s going on around the world, we have decided to unite the two most powerful magazines in the sector,” Rhiannon James-van Beuningen, RISI senior vice president of marketing services, said in a statement.
In 2009, RISI says it will expand its coverage in China by launching Pulp & Paper China, a quarterly. “This worldwide presence makes us the only true global information provider in the sector,” James-van Beuningen said.
In addition to the print editions, RISI says it will launch a digital edition of PPI next year, with a projected circulation of 10,000.
