Walther von La Roche was editor of the book series until his death in 2010. Gabriele Hooffacker had already been accepted into the editorial team in 2006 . She has been publishing the series since 2010.


The yellow books and the websites for each book convey practical journalistic knowledge. Many books have been revised and updated many times since they were first published. From the beginning, the distinguishing feature of the volumes is the yellow cover. That is why the books were affectionately called the "yellow series" by students and journalism students.
