#ISOJ Journal, the official research publication of the International Symposium on Online Journalism, is seeking extended abstracts (up to 1,000 words) for a special issue on “Digital Media and Democracy in the Americas”.
The submitted papers can deal with, but not limited to, the following questions: How have the news media performed their democratic duties in the Americas? Have journalistic practices changed in response to technological innovations and political challenges? How have journalists viewed their professional roles in this new environment? What regulations have encouraged or hindered independent reporting? Have viable alternatives to traditional revenue models emerged? Has the use of social media by social movements and political figures affected the jurisdictional power of the news media and, if so, how have the latter dealt with this change?
Deadline for extended abstracts is 15 August 2018.
