About us

As one of the UK’s longest-established news outlets, we champion openness, honesty and accountability – and they are values that we apply to ourselves as well as to others.

On this page you will find full details about who we are and what we do, the standards we adhere to, how to get in touch with us and much else besides.

We think it should answer all your questions but please do not hesitate to let us know if there is any useful information you think is missing.


The Press and Journal is one of the longest-established news outlets anywhere in the world, serving the people of the north and north-east of Scotland without interruption for nearly 275 years.

Over time the way we deliver the top stories to you, from seismic global developments to what’s happening right here on our doorsteps, has constantly evolved.

In 2021 we transformed our entire operation and expanded our reporting staff to make sure we are fully focused on delivering everything our audiences want.

We have revolutionised our digital storytelling while still ensuring a top-quality print product gets to tens of thousands of people far and wide every morning.

This willingness to adapt has proved successful: the P&J remains the UK’s biggest selling regional daily newspaper, we enjoy some of the highest levels of trust among media outlets and we are rapidly expanding our digital subscriber audience.

We are proud of that record but never rest on our laurels.

And through all this change, one basic aim remains at the heart of everything we do: to be your single most reliable, clear, trusted and comprehensive forum for facts, opinions and civilised debate about life in our part of Scotland and far beyond.
