Sydsvenska Dagbladet Snällposten, usually known simply as Sydsvenskan, is a daily newspaper in Scania in Sweden, founded in 1848. It is published in Malmö and chiefly distributed in southern Scania. Its coverage is characterized by local news from southwest Scania in addition to a full coverage of national, EU, and international news.

Until 1966, Sydsvenskan had close ties to the Rightist Party (now Moderate Party).[1][2] In the Swedish debate about the country's role in the EU and in relation to the Eurozone, the paper has emphasized the importance of a closer political, economical, and cultural affiliation to Europe.[1] Its stated editorial position is "independent liberal".

The newspaper changed its format from broadsheet to tabloid on 5 October 2004.

Sydsvenskan introduced a soft paywall in February 2013. Those who did not have a paper subscription could view a maximum of 20 free articles per month.[3] A year after, this was changed to 5 articles per week.[4] Subscription models are available from 28 Swedish kronor (around US$4.40), with the cheapest one giving full access to the website.[3] A year after the introduction of the paywall, 60,000 subscribers had created accounts on the website and 4,000 had purchased a digital subscription.[4]

Sydsvenskan is owned by the Bonnier Group.
