Third Sector magazine will move into a new stage of development in the next issue at the start of the new year.
The cover will be a picture rather than a news page, with all the news consolidated into a four-page run from page four. This will be followed by a new four-page section focusing on analysis, background and interviews.
The comment section will also be expanded to three pages to give more space to columnists, plus letters, emails and comments from readers.
Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector, said feedback indicated that more people were reading daily breaking news on the website, which was also developing its coverage and appeal.
"All the news will still be there in the weekly magazine, which will have the same number of pages," he said."But it seemed the right time to give more space to the things that people feel print does best – assessing what the news means, interviewing key people and encouraging debate and a sense of community.
"Good design and good writing are other important parts of the formula, and we hope more people in the sector will continue to find the magazine useful, interesting and entertaining."
