The Readership Works (TRW) was set up in 2010 to introduce the next generation cross-platform audience measurement system for Australia’s newspaper and magazine industry, emma.

TRW is a wholly owned subsidiary of NewsMediaWorks and was responsible for conducting and completing all aspects of the 2010 tender process which led to the development of emma. TRW now manages the ongoing provision and evolution of emma through collaboration with industry partners and independent experts.

emma was developed and is carried out by independent research company Ipsos, the global leaders in local audience measurement, under its agreement with TRW. Ipsos has unrivalled experience conducting audience measurement surveys and measures readership in more countries across the globe than any other research company.

TRW and Ipsos have consulted extensively and collaborated with industry bodies including the Media Federation of Australia (MFA), which sits on the TRW Board and technical committee, Magazine Publishers of Australia (MPA) and the Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA). Leading media research industry experts, including Ian Muir and Sol Lebovic and independent auditor Dr Rob Hall, have also been involved in the development of emma.
