Free print issues

Your options for reading our content

Any institution involved in global development affairs and any person with a serious interest in the matter in a professional or volunteering context can currently subscribe to the print edition of D+C free of charge. On the other hand, you may find the Digital Monthly – which differs from the print issues – useful too.

To be put on our mailing list, please sign up at: As regular readers may know, we produce six print issues per year. They include focus sections that give you a good overview of what is being discussed internationally in regard to specific topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). If you want to get an idea of what the print issues are like, please check out the pdf version of the one we published ahead of the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017:

The print issues do not include everything we post on our website (, but they are useful in terms of archiving and documenting important facets of a global debate. Our Digital Monthly, by contrast, compiles about four weeks’ worth of website content. Anyone who downloads it, can read the articles offline. We believe that the Digital Monthly is valuable, especially in places where internet connectivity cannot be taken for granted. To ensure the download is feasible, we have reduced the size of the Digital Monthly, and plan to keep it below four MB consistently. In countries under authoritarian rule, moreover, it is safer to download the Digital Monthly fast than to stay on our website for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, not all governments welcome our insistence on good governance and human rights. Spy agencies increasingly monitor the web, but keeping track of an e-Paper is very difficult.

Those who read the Digital Monthly as soon as it is published will find that it includes several items that have not yet appeared on the website. Our team is too small to cover breaking news, and we make sure we post something on our website at least six times per week. All of our contributions are original content and was written for D+C/E+Z.
