AudioFile is a print and online magazine whose mission is to review "unabridged and abridged audiobooks, original audio programs, commentary, and dramatizations in the spoken-word format. The focus of reviews is the audio presentation, not the critique of the written material."[1] AudioFile is published six times a year in Portland, Maine.[2][3]


The publication was launched in 1992 as a 12-page black & white newsletter containing about 50 critical reviews of audiobooks, focused on new releases.[4] In 1997, it switched to a 36-page color magazine format containing about 60 reviews per issue and interviews with authors, readers, and publishers.[5]


In 2000, AudioFile launched an online database of past issues.[6] Current issues were offered online beginning in 2001.[7]
