WHAT WE DO

Digital Journalism Research Group (DJRG) strives towards being a leading environment for research and development activities within the field of digital journalism in Norway, as well as internationally.

Research-based knowledge is much needed to understand how the profession and the journalistic institutions are changing, and also to gain a more refined understanding of journalism’s role and boundaries in society and thus also of what journalism is and what (digital) journalism studies should be.

EDITORIAL CHANGE
Media management and editorially facing digital innovation.

THE FIELD
Digital journalism studies as a field and theory.

ALTERNATIVE NEWS
Alternative news media and their production, content and consumption.

INFORMATION
Disinformation, digital source criticism and fact-checking.

SOCIAL MEDIA
News for and via social media- and mobile media platforms.

ANALYTICS
Digital news consumption, audience engagement and analytics. Digital journalism and automation.

WHO WE ARE


The DJRG-team investigates what digitalization means to journalism as a profession and practice, as well as to the education of journalists.


The journal Digital Journalism is an outlet for advancing international research into digital journalism studies (DJS). Digital Journalism aims to deliver cutting-edge journalism research, providing a critical forum to advance scholarship that intersects with numerous disciplines.
