Frequently Asked Questions about the Digital Magazine
What is a digital magazine?
A digital magazine is an online publication that is a digital version of a print magazine, a new option Arizona Wildlife Views magazine is proud to announce and offer. Starting now, Arizona Wildlife Views magazine is available as a powerful, new digital version with the same layout and text as the print version. The digital version offers a paper-like reading experience, but with many advantages possible only in this format, including:
• Email notification that your digital version is available.
• The ability to read your magazine anytime, anywhere, via your Internet browser.
• A hyperlinked Table of Contents that takes you directly to the articles, features and sections of most interest to you.
• Quick links to additional editorial content on the Web.
• Enhanced content, such as videos, instructional how-tos, downloadable PDFs and more.
• Keyword search that helps you find a topic or name in seconds.
Does the digital version contain everything in the print version: articles, news and photography?
Yes, the digital version offers you the same great content and the same great design as our print magazine. You won’t miss a single article, news brief or award-winning photograph.
