There is no longer a way to subscribe to U.S. News & World Report, as the magazine stopped producing monthly print issues in 2010. Readers can access articles for free on the U.S. News & World Report website, or they can purchase U.S. News & World Report book collections and access to premium online content.
U.S. News & World Report started as a weekly newspaper called "United States News" that publisher David Lawrence launched in 1933. Lawrence also founded a magazine called "World Report" in 1946 that focused more on international news. The two merged in 1948 to become one magazine entitled "U.S. News & World Report."
In December 2010, the last print issue of "U.S. News & World Report" was published, completing the publication's transition to digital-only content. This move eliminated the magazine's need for monthly subscriptions as its content was now fully available for free online. As of 2013, the U.S. News & World Report website had over 20 million unique visitors every month.
U.S. News Report has several book collections and other products for sale on its website. The subjects of these books include history, religion, health and education. There are also two programs for purchase that enable college students to have expanded online profiles on the U.S. News & World Report website and get access to premium online content, such as in-depth data, tools and expanded profiles of schools.
