Professional internet magazine dies

THE FIRST Slovak professional internet magazine, inZine, closed on April 1, when its publisher decided to terminate it after five years of support, the TASR news agency reported.
The magazine's editor in chief, Elena Akácsová, said that the magazine competed with press agencies, dailies, magazines, radio, and television, which gradually realised the potential of putting their material on the internet.
The publisher, acting as a private firm, hoped that the magazine would become a commercial success.

The publisher, acting as a private firm, hoped that the magazine would become a commercial success.

"These expectations were not met, though, and in light of the current state of the Slovak internet market and the world market, [it would be impossible to continue] without significantly reducing the quality of the magazine," Akácsová said.
