Abstract

The 2014 independence referendum was a major topic in the Scottish press for over two years. From the SNP’s majority win at the 2011 Scottish election, which put it in a position to realise its longstanding policy of holding a referendum on independence, to the Edinburgh Agreement in October 2012, which gave the Scottish Parliament the power to hold the referendum, and the long campaign that led to 18 September 2014, all stages of the trajectory received considerable coverage in Scottish newspapers.
