About Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly, familiarly known in the book world as PW and "the bible of the book business", is a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business.

As the international journal of book publishing and bookselling, Publishers Weekly focuses on business news, reviews and bestseller lists and is targeted at publishers, booksellers, librarians, the media and literary agents.

"The International News Magazine of Book Publishing and Bookselling."

First published in 1872, the magazine began as The Publishers' Weekly, a collective catalogue for publishers to pool their resources. That listing of books enabled booksellers to learn about forthcoming titles, and eventually the publication expanded to include features and articles.

Publishers Weekly attempts to serve all involved in the creation, production, marketing and sale of the written word in book, audio, video and electronic formats.
