The Global Journalist in the 21st Century systematically assesses the demographics, education, socialization, professional attitudes and working conditions of journalists in various countries around the world. This book updates the original Global Journalist (1998) volume with new data, adding more than a dozen countries, and provides material on comparative research about journalists that will be useful to those interested in doing their own studies. The editors put together this collection working under the assumption that journalists' backgrounds, working conditions and ideas are related to what is reported (and how it is covered) in the various news media round the world, in spite of societal and organizational constraints, and that this news coverage matters in terms of world public opinion and policies. Outstanding features include: Coverage of 33 nations located around the globe, based on recent surveys conducted among representative samples of local journalists Comprehensive analyses by well-known media scholars from each country A section on comparative studies of journalists An appendix with a collection of survey questions used in various nations to question journalists As the most comprehensive and reliable source on journalists around the world, The Global Journalist will serve as the primary source for evaluating the state of journalism. As such, it promises to become a standard reference among journalism, media, and communication students and researchers around the world.

Im Mittelpunkt des Bandes steht die zukünftige Organisation der Journalismusproduktion. Christopher Buschow untersucht Neugründungen und Start-ups, die mitunter innovativer und zukunftsorientierter arbeiten können als Presseverlage und ihre Redaktionen. Der Autor zeigt auf Grundlage empirischer Fallstudienforschung, was es bedeutet, in neugegründeten Medienorganisationen ‚Journalismus zu produzieren‘ und ‚Medien zu managen‘. Ziel des Bandes ist es, die Untersuchung von Entrepreneurship und Unternehmertum in den Medien als einen instruktiven Zugang zur derzeitigen Neuordnung des Journalismus zu profilieren.

Suchmaschinen sind der wichtigste Zugangsweg zum Auffinden neuer Netzinhalte. Als Gatekeeper im Internet stellen sie eine zentrale Herausforderung für Wissenschaft und Forschung dar - es geht letztlich um die Frage der "digitalen Informationsmacht". Mit diesem Band liegt erstmals eine Publikation vor, die die Rolle von Suchmaschinen in der Informationsgesellschaft in den wichtigsten Dimensionen aus verschiedenen Perspektiven wissenschaftlich beleuchtet und dabei hilft, die künftige Suchmaschinenforschung zu systematisieren. Der Sammelband greift die zentralen Forschungsfelder in drei Kapiteln auf: Suchmaschinenregulierung und -ökonomie, das Verhältnis von Suchmaschinen und Journalismus sowie die Qualität von Suchmaschinen und das Nutzerverhalten Der Band richtet sich neben der Wissenschaft auch an die Praxis, vor allem an Medienaufsicht und -ökonomie sowie an den Journalismus.

It’s easy to make a rhetorical case for the value of journalism. Because, it is a necessary precondition for democracy; it speaks to the people and for the people; it informs citizens and enables them to make rational decisions; it functions as their watchdog on government and other powers that be. But does rehashing such familiar rationales bring journalism studies forward? Does it contribute to ongoing discussions surrounding journalism’s viability going forth? For all their seeming self-evidence, this book considers what bearing these old platitudes have in the new digital era. It asks whether such hopeful talk really reflects the concrete roles journalism now performs for people in their everyday lives. In essence, it poses questions that strike at the core of the idea of journalism itself. Is there a singular journalism that has one well-defined role in society? Is its public mandate as strong as we think? The internationally-renowned scholars comprising the collection address these recurring concerns that have long-defined the profession and which journalism faces even more acutely today. By discussing what journalism was, is, and (possibly) will be, this book highlights key contemporary areas of debate and tackles on-going anxieties about its future.

What is news? Why does news turn out like it does? What factors influence the creation, production, and dissemination of news? Cultural Meanings of News takes on these deceptively simple questions through an essential collection of seminal and contemporary studies by leaders in the fields of mass communication and media studies. Similar in format and purpose to editor Dan Berkowitz's award-winning Social Meanings of News, this new volume represents a conceptual update, a continuation of the discourse about the nature of news and how it comes to be, moving ideas ahead from the earlier tradition of sociological approaches to the more pervasive cultural perspectives that inform understandings about news. Cultural Meanings of News provides a carefully selected set of readings, organized into thematic areas that each probe a dimension of the literature: from sociological roots to cultural perspectives; news as narrative and cultural text; newswork as cultural ritual; news as cultural myth; news and its interpretive communities; news as a source and reflection of collective memory; toward the future of news research. This text-reader provides students and scholars with first-hand exposure to cultural approaches to the study of news, while also providing an organizing framework for understanding the commonalties and differences between threads in the research. The goals are to engage readers through guided immersion in the material.
