Publishing is one of ATD's largest operations, encompassing the creation and distribution of books, magazines, newsletters, and research reports. Through its publications, ATD leads the field with content that advances new thinking, highlights proven practices, and raises awareness of the value of talent development.
For 65 years, the award-winning TD magazine has heralded and even led the evolution of the profession with the purpose to deliver to its readers the emerging trends and proven best practices. Indeed, since its debut in 1947 as the Journal for Industrial Training, what is now called TD magazine has chronicled the issues and ideas, the pains and passions of a growing profession.
For almost six decades, the magazine has covered the art and science of developing people and the systems in which they work to produce results. From the no-nonsense idealism of the 1940s and 1950s, through the social consciousness of the 1960s and 1970s, to the bottom-line thinking of the 1980s and 1990s, and on to the technological upheaval of the new millennium, TD magazine has been the voice of the profession.
Our readers are degreed talent development professionals and line managers. They range from new practitioners to seasoned executives in business, government, academia, and consulting.
Our goals are to:
provide useful, how-to information on current best practices through case studies
- share new technologies and their applications
- report emerging trends
- address relevant and pivotal issues to the field.
TD is a monthly magazine available to ATD members as part of their dues, and by subscription and single-copy sales.
