History and profile[edit]

Upsala Nya Tidning was established in 1890.[1][2] The distribution and news coverage are mainly regional, while the editorial page is devoted to national and international as well as regional affairs. The stated political position of the editorial page is "independent liberal". The paper was published in broadsheet format until 1 February 2005 when it began to be published in tabloid format.[3][4]
