The Wall Street Journal (also known as The Journal) is an American business-focused, English-language international daily newspaper based in New York City, with international editions also available in Chinese and Japanese. The Journal, along with its Asian editions, is published six days a week by Dow Jones & Company, a division of News Corp. The newspaper is published in the broadsheet format and online. The Journal has been printed continuously since its inception on July 8, 1889, by Charles Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser.

It is regarded as a “newspaper of record”, particularly in terms of business and financial news. The newspaper has won 37 Pulitzer Prizes (as of 2019). The editorial pages of The Journal are typically conservative in their position. The Journal’s editorial board has promoted views that are at odds with the scientific consensus on climate change, acid rain, and ozone depletion, as well as on the health dangers of second-hand smoke, pesticides and asbestos.

A complement to the print newspaper, The Wall Street Journal Online, was launched in 1996 and has allowed access only by subscription from the beginning. In 2003, Dow Jones began to integrate reporting of The Journal’s print and online subscribers together in Audit Bureau of Circulations statements. In 2007, The Journal launched a worldwide expansion of its website to include major foreign-language editions.

According to, the Wall Street Journal is America’s largest newspaper by paid circulation with more than 2.2 million subscribers.
