From June of this year it will be possible to read the RBTH foreign supplements on the Internet or on mobile devices with the aid of NewspaperDirect, one of the world’s biggest Digital Newspaper and Magazine Kiosk.
Thanks to PressReader, NewspaperDirect’s app for smartphones, tablets and e-book readers, each issue of the new insert will be available on its day of publication on devices running on iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10 or Windows.
The SmartFlow technology used in PressReader lets you look through the articles in the form of a horizontal stream of articles. For more conservative users there is Replica View, which displays whole pages of the supplement in the same format as the printed version.
Other useful functions available with PressReader include wireless printing of a selected article or of a whole page, posting articles that you like on Facebook and Twitter, and listening to an audio version of all the articles.
Apart from PressReader, the foreign supplements will be available on their day of publication via any Internet browser at www.PressDisplay.com. Here you’ll be able to look through the latest issues free of charge.
For the time being, 19 supplements about Russia in newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times (USA), The Daily Telegraph (UK), Le Figaro (France), Süddeutsche Zeitung (Germany) and others will be available on NewspaperDirect.

“All our supplements are unique in their own way. They are all adapted and localised to the format, language, journalistic style and readership of the specific foreign newspapers in which they are published. Our cooperation with NewspaperDirect will enable us to make these supplements available anywhere in the world and on any mobile device,” says Eugene Abov, head of the Russia Beyond the Headlines project.
