    Project Details


    The second wave of WJS has continued and extended the work carried out through a pilot study in 2007–2011. Breaking all records in comparative media research, the study brought together researchers from 67 countries from around the world. In an unprecedented collaborative effort, the project network interviewed over 27,500 journalists based on a common methodological framework.

    The questionnaire elicited views of journalists on several issues journalists and news organizations face today, such as journalism’s place in society, ethics, autonomy and influences on newsmaking, journalistic trust in public institutions, and the transformation of journalism in the broadest sense.
