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 to 23,402,[3] by 2013 it had fallen to 16,569, a year-on-year decline of 5.6%[4] By the second half of 2014, its circulation had fallen to 12,103.[5]
