The Jakarta Globe is a daily online English language newspaper in Indonesia, launched on November 12, 2008.[1]

The paper initially came out with an average of 48 pages a day, and published Monday to Saturday. It had three sections, and contained (in section A) a range of general news, including metropolitan and national news coverage as well as international news, plus comment, (in section B) Indonesian and world business and sport plus a classified advertising section, and (in section C) an extensive features and lifestyle coverage as well as entertainment, listings and reader service and puzzle/cartoon pages. The newspaper later added a Sunday Jakarta Globe edition. The newspaper converted from broadsheet to tabloid format in May 2012, and then was published online only from 15 December 2015.[2]

Its primary aim is to bring objective, entertaining news and information relevant to lives of readers in Jakarta and Indonesia as well as serve as a reliable window into Indonesia. It is marketed primarily at cosmopolitan and well educated Indonesians and expatriates.

The newspaper's owner, PT Jakarta Globe Media, is part of the BeritaSatu Media Holdings, an associated company of Lippo.
