Scotland on Sunday’s sister paper The Scotsman went tabloid in 2004.
In March 2013 the Scotsman and Scotsman on Sunday asked to be included in the six-monthly regional ABC report and not the monthly national figures.
Scotland on Sunday (which costs £2.10) had an average circulation of 37,407 in the first six months of 2013 compared with more than 50,000 in 2011.
