The production and consumption of news in the digital era is blurring the boundaries between professionals, citizens and activists. Actors producing information are multiplying, but still media companies hold central position. Journalism research faces important challenges to capture, examine, and understand the current news environment.
This handbook starts from the pressing need for a thorough and bold debate to redefine the assumptions of research in the changing field of journalism. By addressing both institutional and non-institutional news production and providing ample attention to the question ‘who is a journalist?’ and the changing practices of news audiences in the digital era, this book shapes the field and defines the roadmap for the research challenges that scholars will face in the coming decades.
