AudioFile is a print and online magazine whose mission is to review "unabridged and abridged audiobooks, original audio programs, commentary, and dramatizations in the spoken-word format. Our focus is the audio presentation, not the critique of the written material."
The publication was launched in 1992 as a twelve-page black & white newsletter with about 50 critical reviews of audiobooks, focused on new releases. In 1997, it switched to a 36-page color magazine format with about 60 reviews per issue and interviews with authors, readers, and publishers.
AudioFile offers three levels of subscriptions:
- Digital subscription: "Full access to the Web site including PDF Edition. Rate: $2.95/month."
- Basic Listener subscription: "AudioFile print edition & access to the Web site. Rate: $36/year."
- AudioFile PLUS subscription: "AudioFile print edition, access to Web site including online Archive of Reviews, the Audiobook Reference Guide, RealTime Reviews, and Library Listeners. Rate: $60/year."
