The print industry interests me. Specifically, good publications interest me and, in turn, this raises the question of what makes a good publication and distinguishes it from the rest of what is a crowded market. This contextual report uses this as a starting point to explore 'goodness' – how it can be achieved and how it is appreciated. The report aims to establish why goodness is good for us, revolving around the hypothesis that a higher input of effort into caring and valuing work (for roles of both the creator and receiver) can lead to better enjoyment; increased enthusiasm, knowledge and passion all fuel the desire to engage even further, thus forming a beautiful positive feedback loop. Current examples will be discussed with research focussed about the strengths (and weaknesses) in good publications, exploring their journalistic style, material presentation and, perhaps most importantly, the chosen content matter.
