We Need Your Expertise for the First Global Survey on Technology in Newsrooms


Update (April 25, 2017): The survey has now closed, but check back for the results.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is conducting a valuable survey on the State of Technology in Global Newsrooms. This unique study will shed much-needed light on how news media professionals around the world are embracing the digital revolution. The study will identify key trends shaping our business as technology redefines how we produce and distribute the news. We will highlight regional trends and discuss which technologies are having the greatest impact. The study is backed by Storyful and Google News Lab.

Your knowledge and experience are essential to the success of this project. The survey will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Your responses will be kept confidential. The data will be reported in the aggregate, and no individual or organization will be identified.

ICFJ will produce a report based on the results. We will make that data available to all participants for their own coverage. As a survey participant, you may request additional data analysis from the principal investigator, Dr. Diana Owen. You can also enter a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

The survey is available in twelve languages: Arabic, Bahasa, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
