In the short time that Trends in Newsrooms has been appearing, vast shifts have taken place. Online and print journalism work side by side in newsrooms; reporters and editors increasingly do both at once. Journalism is more transparent and readers more involved. “Mainstream media” are under attack from web publications and writers who claim that their more authentic reporting will finish the arrogance of big corporate-owned media. Web media are under attack for hidden agendas and inaccuracy.

With the proliferation of media, the pressure on old business models means pressure on newsrooms. Newspaper formats, infographics, weekend editions, collaborative partnerships are just four areas which have seen rapid recent development. All these debates, and many more, are tracked every day at

So we decided to keep swopping between technologies to reach the widest audience of editors we can. Hence this third compilation in print. We hope that you find it useful. But if it isn’t quite up-to-date enough, don’t forget that the new developments are all on
