Whether your background is cultural heritage, education and research, health or public service broadcasting, you face many of the same opportunities and challenges when it comes to digital content. In this fast-paced, ever-changing environment the Strategic Content Alliance’s Digital Content Quarterly (DCQ) provides a news round-up of digital content issues from around the world, thought-provoking features highlighting key debates in the field and regular columns from experts in areas that have most traction in terms of digital content provision: intellectual property rights and business modelling and sustainability. The quarterly is also interactive**, complete with video interviews, features and ‘top tip’ guides as well as a vibrant new design.

The first issue includes features on crowdsourcing, green ICT and how augmented reality apps can bring the future into educational and cultural spaces; interviews with technology guru Cory Doctorow and the BBC’s controller of archive development Tony Ageh; plus must-read columns and a digital content news roundup.

    I really want to like this magazine and it has considerable promise. But it’s a little ironic that Digital Content Quarterly has trapped itself in the PDF universe – even more so in requiring a particular version of Acrobat to function. In these days of e-readers and tablets like the iPad it would be good to have some download alternatives like ePub or Kindle compatible formats or even a full web version. Even a plain text or generated RSS would be helpful. The current PDF offering is aesthetically pleasing but as regards portable device accessibility it’s a very poor second and so the magazine risks not gaining readership from the increasing number of users using mobile devices including various ereaders.
