The new certificate from ABC allows publishers to clearly indicate interactive digital publication circulation. These four interactive editions of Future’s brands are distinct from their print and standard digital editions and come complete with specific interactive advertising.

Standard digital editions are direct replicas of the print version. All four Future brands also deliver standard editions and will be reporting their circulation along with their print circulation as part of tomorrow’s ABC concurrent release.

Future Ad Sales Director – London, James Ranson, says: “Future believes our commercial and agency partners deserve clarity as the emerging interactive digital market develops. The ABC Digital Publications Certificates we are publishing today for these interactive tablet editions – alongside the print and standard digital circulations published tomorrow – provide a picture of brands which are really pioneering in the digital space. These numbers represent a solid foundation for future growth as the demand for greater content engagement through interactive features inevitably increases.”
