How can we make sense of the ongoing technological changes affecting journalism and journalists today?

Will the new digital generation break down barriers for journalism, or will things just stay the same?

These and other pertinent questions will be asked and explored throughout this exciting new book that looks at the changing dynamics of journalism in a digital era. Examining issues and debates through cultural, social, political and economic frameworks, the book gets to grip with today's new journalism by understanding its historical threats and remembering its continuing resilience and ability to change with the times. In considering new forms of journalistic practice the book covers important topics such as:

* truth in the new journalism

* the changing identity of the journalist

* the economic implications for the industry

* the impact on the relationship between the journalist and their audience

* the legal framework of doing journalism online.

Vibrant in style and accessible to all, Digital Journalism is a captivating read for anyone looking to understand the advent of a new journalism that has been altered by the latest digital technologies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The most comprehensive book I've read on the issues facing online journalism in the UK. Digital Journalism manages to combine an understanding of technological and cultural developments with a commercial and political awareness that prevents it falling into the trap of technological determinism. Essential reading for journalism students

Paul Bradshaw
City University and Birmingham City University

Digital Journalism uses current language to tell the story of journalism in transition. Using historical context, contemporary examples, and relevant theory, Jones and Salter discuss the meaning of digital technology for the practice of journalism. Their approach is globally focused and examines how different traditions of journalism adopt and adapt to technological innovation, creating new cultures of journalism and redefining existing ones. A must read for students and practitioners of online journalism
Zizi Papacharissi

University of Illinois at Chicago

Janet Jones and Lee Salter contribute an engaged and engaging analysis of journalism in the digital age that dispenses with the cheer-leading and the doom-mongering that all too frequently drown out more subtle voices. Their book discusses new and emerging technologies within the political, economic, cultural and social contexts that are so vital to an understanding of what is going on around us. Digital Journalism is highly recommended reading for journalists and scholars alike
Tony Harcup

University of Sheffield

Janet Jones and Lee Salter have condesed a vast array of information about the theory and practice of journalism before, but mostly after, the 'digital disruption' of media. The book leads with an insightful introduction that sketches out contemporary journalism as a practice with historically entrenched concepts facing transition... Most of Jones and Salter's examples are drawn from the UK media, but Digital Journalism has a global perspective, and Australian readers will be able to find some references to local cases... The content of the chapters is well sourced and referenced, and the book unfolds in a logical way... A comprehensive guide to the state of journalism, the book will be invaluable to students of journalism.
