Wikilinks[edit]

In trying to clean this up, I took the approach of linking to existing wikipedia pages when available, and directly to web sites in other cases. It's not done, I didn't look up many of the unlinked magazines, but I'll continue to clean it up. Snackwell 19:35, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Link Farm / Spam[edit]

I think this and most of the Reed Business Information articles just seem to be one gigantic link farm / advertisement. This hasn't really made any significant changes since it was supposedly being cleaned up 6 months ago, its just gotten more external links and advertising for the most part. pw 18:21, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

updated description and recent news[edit]

The page had virtually no explanation about what the company does, and I added that. It also stated that a new CEO had cancelled plans to divest, but the article never introduced this plan so a reader would have been left confused. I addded updates on the recent closures. The recent sales will take time before they close, so updates will be needed to the list, when it is all finalized (which it is not as of this writing) Driverseven (talk) 21:05, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Reed Exhibitions[edit]

Another part of this Reed Elsevier division which is missing from this article is Reed Exibitions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.137.237.139 (talk) 11:43, September 6, 2010‎

Reed Exhibitions is a separate article. Senator2029 ➔ “Talk” 01:10, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Removal of Referenced Material[edit]

I restored portions of the text that were removed by JaneBaldwin as it contained the only referenced material in the entire article. None of the new text contains any references and I'm not sure about the merits of the lists that make up the majority of the article. None but shining hours (talk) 19:48, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
