Nearly all modern paper is made from shredded, treated wood fibre (rarely now from rag) but comes in many different weights and colours, and may be coated or uncoated. The longevity of paper is an issue (see acid-free paper). In high-volume lithographic printing, the cost of the paper is by far the greatest cost component.

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.
