CommonWealth Magazine Shutters Print Edition

CommonWealth magazine, the 22-year-old quarterly published by Boston-based nonpartisan think tank MassINC, is going all digital. The Summer 2018 issue, out today, will be CommonWealth's last, editor Bruce Mohl revealed in the issue's editor's letter, arguing the magazine will more effectively serve its organizational mission—that is, coverage of the policy debates that impact lower- and middle-class Massachusetts residents—by devoting the bulk of its funding to its growing digital channels. "We explored a number of compromise positions, including publishing a thinner magazine (you’ll notice this issue is a bit narrower), a smaller-sized magazine, and even reducing the number of issues we publish," wrote Mohl. "We evaluated each option closely, but in the end they all felt as if they were merely delaying the inevitable." Citing an online survey of over 1,000 CommonWealth readers, Mohl said a mere 10 percent of print subscribers exclusively read the magazine in print (all of each issue's articles also appear online), while nearly two-thirds of print readers said they'd continue to read the magazine online should its print edition end.

But we are the go-to place for insightful analysis, coverage of events and people beyond Boston, and for policy debates," Mohl continued. "I know many of you like the...
