Digital publishing

As opposed to lithographic printing, direct printing of computer output often with technologies that avoid the need to create films, plates, etc. These use different output media, the most common of which is toner (as found in laser printers and photocopiers). Of the estimated 45 trillion pages printed around the world in 2005, only 9 per cent were printed digitally, but that proportion will almost certainly have increased since.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
