print clone
n. An online version of a newspaper or magazine that is a replica of the print version.
Gradually, the publishers worked to transmute the datasets into new electronic products. For example, FirstPoint is a database which includes the Australian Digest and the Australian Case Citator, as well as basic hard copy sources in the old environment. It is an example of this new generation of offerings which will gradually replace the old 'print clone' datasets.
