NEW YORK (AFP) - The New Yorker said Monday it was opening up its archives from 2007 as part of a website relaunch ahead of implementing a digital "paywall" at the prestigious magazine.

The move marks the latest effort by media outlets to bring in new revenues from digital readers amid declining print circulation.

The New Yorker, launched in 1925 as a literary and news weekly and known for its humorous cartoons, said details of the "metered paywall" would be forthcoming.

"Beginning this week, absolutely everything new that we publish - the work in the print magazine and the work published online only - will be unlocked," the editors said in a blog post.
