Oxford Mail is a daily tabloid newspaper in Oxford, England owned by Newsquest. It is published six days a week. It is a sister paper to the weekly tabloid The Oxford Times.


The Oxford Mail was founded in 1928 as a successor to Jackson's Oxford Journal.

From 1961 until 1979 its editor was Mark Barrington-Ward.[2] At that time it was owned by the Westminster Press and was an evening newspaper.[2]

The Oxford Mail is now published in the morning. In the second half of 2008 its circulation fell 6.8% to 23,402.[1]

Censorship case

In 2014, a page on the Oxford Mail website[3] was removed from [4] Dr Robert Daniels-Dwyer, an archaeology specialist, objected to information on him concerning a 2006 shoplifting case.[5]
