CAN Newsletter

This unique magazine, established in June 1992, is released quarterly. It comprises technical in-depth articles and application stories. From 2024, it has been merged with the sister publication CAN Newsletter Online. The magazine is downloadable free of charge.

The CAN Newsletter offers the possibility to place advertisements. In the first year after publication, an issue is downloaded in average by some 5000 readers. Additionally, the reader can download single articles. Former issues/articles are also downloaded in the following years. Some of them are downloaded even after ten years after the release.

Depending on the content, this can result in more than 10 000 downloads over the years.

Fake news is cheap to produce. Genuine journalism is expensive,” stated Toomas Hendrik Ilves, Estonian president from 2006 to 2016. CiA goes the hard way: “We ensure that our reporting is fair, balanced, and bias free,” said Holger Zeltwanger, publisher and editor-in-chief.
