Enjoy freshly selected Guardian and Observer views and analyses. Existing Guardian Weekly members may access the digital version for free; simply establish an account. Otherwise, there are two options: purchase a digital subscription or activate your existing print subscription.
If you have a Guardian Weekly subscription, you can get a free digital edition of the magazine on Pressreader on the day of release, as well as 90 days of prior issues. Subscribe now.
If you don't have a subscription, you can still read articles on the Guardian website - all we ask is that you pay some attention to advertising. It's designed to make money only if you use it, so there are no risk-free ways of reading articles. And if you ignore ads you will eventually be asked to pay for content you have already seen.
But you can also read articles for free in their original form, via the Guardian newspaper site. Just click the "Read full article" link next to any story that interests you. These are static pages but they include links to other interesting articles and sites that may not otherwise be seen by a general audience. They are updated regularly but cannot capture current affairs news or this-minute events.
Additionally, the Guardian has a large archive of daily articles dating back to 2003. These are in the same format as their contemporary version of the website and are fully searchable. There is a limit on the number of articles you can view per month but you can register for a free account if you want to try to reach this limit.
With a subscription to The Guardian Weekly, you can take the time to study the news. Enjoy chosen global articles from the last seven days sent to your inbox anywhere in the globe. Also available are exclusive interviews with major players in the world of politics, entertainment and the arts.
The Guardian is based in London but also has offices in New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sydney, and Washington, D.C.
It was founded in 1821 by Charles Knight with the aim to provide "the news and things public" in exchange for a small fee. Today, it is one of the most popular newspapers in the UK. It has been described as "the old man of journalism".
Its readers include millions of people around the world. The paper is sold at more than 700 locations in over 100 countries. It is available in digital and print versions. The website receives more than 40 million visits each month.
It has won several awards including two National Newspaper Awards and three British Press Awards. In 1993, it became the first newspaper to be listed on the London Stock Exchange. In 2014, it acquired Zócalo Public Square, a nonprofit organization that promotes civic engagement.
Its editor is Katharine Jackson who was appointed to this position in 2016.
You can now read The Guardian and The Observer Digital Editions whenever and wherever you choose. The Guardian and The Observer Digital Editions are accessible at home or at work, and they are the same edition as the printed copy available at the newsstand. You can use your phone or tablet to read the articles on The Guardian website directly from our mobile apps or through our free web reader.
The Guardian website is also built for smartphones and tablets. Use the site via your browser or app provider's app, and you'll have access to all the content that we publish in print plus extras such as live scores, playlists and video clips. There are also special sections including Tech 2 and Science which focus on technology and science, respectively.
Finally, we have several subscription options if you want to get access to the latest news throughout the day via email. There are two main types of subscription: single-edition and multi-edition. A single-edition subscription gives you access to an electronic copy of one specific newspaper - it can be The Guardian, The Observer or The Guardian Weekly. If you want to read other newspapers from us then you need to subscribe to a multi-edition plan. A weekly subscription costs £15 ($20) and gives you access to this week's paper along with any online additons such as our Liveblog feature. There are also monthly subscriptions available for those who want uninterrupted access to the daily newspaper every month.
