Quality press is a category of newspapers in national circulation distinguished by their seriousness. The category used to be called "broadsheet" until several papers adopted a tabloid format. Both The Times and The Independent adopted a tabloid format in 2004. The Guardian adopted a Berliner format in 2005.

Circulation figures for the quality press have been falling in recent times, and in December 2009 it was reported that The Guardian, Independent, Times and Financial Times had all experienced falls in readership over the previous 12 months.[1]
