Browsing Newspapers Top

If you wish to find Newspapers of a certain type, we've made it easy by dividing them into 'categories' of Australian States and Territories. To browse Newspapers within a state/territory, simply use the menu bar to the left where you will find a list of available category types. Click on any of the headings to explore available sub-categories and the directory of matching Newspapers.

To narrow this search, please use the 'Distribution Area' field as explained below. (See under 'Searching Newspapers')

Searching Newspapers Top
Below you will find some explanations for the search fields available in the Newspaper search.
Publication Name:

if you know the name of the publication you require information about, simply type the name or a part of the name (see 'Search Tips' for further information) in the 'Publication Name' field and press Search. Results will be displayed immediately - simply click on the publication title or front cover image to view the full record.

From here you can view that newspaper's full entry to find information such as contact details, a general description, demographics, and advertising rates and deadline information.

Publisher Name:if you are unsure of the exact name of a publication but you know the publisher, use the 'Publisher Name' field. Enter either the whole or part name and press search. Search results will contain any newspapers that have publishers matching your search. Click the newspaper's title or front cover to view the newspaper's entry, or click the publisher name to view the entry for the publisher.
 Newspaper Search Fields
 the search fields and filters available for Newspapers
Description:if you are looking for a publication or range of publications which contain something specific, you can choose to use the 'Description' field. Type in a search term such as 'farm' for all newspapers containing variations of the word 'farm' in the publications general description. For information on how to make this feature more efficient, including using multiple search values and 'search characters', see 'Advanced Searching'.
Readership Desc:if you are looking for a particular audience, for example, chefs, use the 'readership desc' field. The readership field contains information such as a newspapers target audience and demographic information and will return a list of any newspapers that match your search. To further narrow your search, try one of the 'Advanced Searching' techniques.
Distribution Area:if you are looking for all publications in an area, and wish to narrow your search, use this field in conjunction with any of the other search fields. For example, to search for all farming or rural newspapers in Queensland, you might try either of those search terms in the 'Description' field, while selecting NSW and QLD in the 'Distribution Area' list. Using the 'Distribution Area' list on its own will return all newspapers in that state or territory. To select multiple state/territory lists, hold the control key while clicking the left mouse button.
Distribution Town:to view all newspapers distributed to a particular town, use the 'Distribution Town' field. As Australia has many town names which occur in multiple states/territories, it is possible to narrow your results by using the 'Distribution Area' list to pick the state should you know it. The 'Distribution Town' field may be used in conjunction with any other search field to assist you in narrowing your results.
Postcode:if you are unsure of the place name or its spelling, type the postcode into the 'Postcode' field to search for all newspapers distributed to that area. The 'Postcode' search may be used with any of the other field to refine your search results.

Newspaper Contact Search Top

Newspaper Contacts SearchThe contact search returns a list of contact information for key personnel associated specifically with Newspapers. Type in the name or part name of a Newspaper or Newspaper's publisher to view contact information for staff members. If you know the first name, surname or email address of a specific person you can use that to search for contacts without knowing which Newspaper they work for.

To search for a list of personnel of a particular type, use the position search to return all matching editors or advertising managers for example. From here you can also create a list of names specific to your needs. (see 'Creating Lists')

Newspaper Lists Top

Newspaper contactsThe 'Lists' feature enables you to create a list of publication specific to your needs (see 'Help - Lists'). However, to enable users to save time, mediadirectory.com.au have taken the most requested information and pre-made Lists for them.

To access these Lists, use the left hand menu 'Download Lists' link. The lists are divided into three main groupings, content and editors, sales and advertising and executives and managers. The lists are created by combining the most commonly used search terms of Media Directory users.
