The Advent of Digitalization in Newsrooms

What are the implications of an evolving sphere of network journalism for journalistic practice? The fi rst part of this book was mainly concerned with highlighting the theoretical underpinnings of the network journalism concept. I will now turn to the realities of information exchange and analyze how this concept fi ts in with the present state of journalism and what it might mean for its future. The following analysis of newsroom practices is grouped into six chapters, each dedicated to different aspects that highlight how the interplay between the emergence of digital technologies and newsgathering, production and dissemination processes transforms the practice of journalism.
