Department for Culture Media and Sport
The term 'publication' refers to information that is available to the public in a variety of formats: for example paper or electronic online based reports or via the Department's web pages.
The Publication Scheme specifies the following:
We follow the Model Publication Scheme (PDF49kb). The Scheme does not cover the Publication Schemes of our sponsored bodies - information about these may be obtained from the individual organisations.
Our aim is to make as much information as possible available free of charge.
At present there will be no charge for information available on our website. Published documents, for example legislation, will have links to the appropriate web site where a charge may be made. Where a charge is applicable this will be indicated with a pound sign "£".
A paper copy of the information contained on our website (including paper copies of reports available in electronic form) is available on request (see 'How to Contact Us'.)
