The results from The State of Technology in Global Newsrooms, a study conducted by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), revealed that journalists and newsrooms lack the technology skills to meet the challenges they face.

It also showed which regions are the leaders and laggards in digital technology adoption, among other findings.

While the disruptions in today’s newsrooms have been widely examined, the study focused on a missing link: how journalists worldwide are using technology. It is based on responses from more than 2,700 newsroom managers and journalists from 130 countries, who provided responses in 12 languages.
