Introducing the News Lab It’s hard to think of a more important source of information in the world than quality journalism. At its best, news communicates truth to power, keeps societies free and open, and leads to more informed decision-making by people and leaders. In the past decade, better technology and an open Internet have led to a revolution in how news is created, distributed, and consumed. And given Google’s mission to ensure quality information is accessible and useful everywhere, we want to help ensure that innovation in news leads to a more informed, more democratic world. That’s why we’ve created the News Lab, a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. Tools for better reporting From Maps to YouTube to Fusion Tables to Earth to Search, we offer many tools that newsrooms can use in their reporting and storytelling.

Interview with Assist. Prof. Dr. Lemi Baruh about research project COSMIC — Citizen Journalism Everything that happens in the world daily directly depends on the participation of every citizen. The same applies to the reporting. Participation of ordinary citizens and their contribution in a time of crisis is what project COSMIC explores. Everything about COSMIC, citizen journalists and media you can read in our interview with project member – Assist. Prof. Q: What inspired you to launch this research and what are your expectations from the study? A: The research project “Contribution of Social Media in Crisis Management” (COSMIC) is a EUfunded project from the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. Of course, what inspired us to focus on citizen journalism is the growing body of literature which suggests that citizen journalism has tremendous potential to challenge the monopoly that mainstream media has over gatekeeping, agenda setting and sense making functions. Q: Current media trends are unthinkable without tech tools and gadgets. Footnote :

What’s New in Digital and Social Media Research: The realities of citizen journalism, and new possibilities for transparency — Citizen Journalism Editor’s note: There’s a lot of interesting academic research going on in digital media — but who has time to sift through all those journals and papers? Our friends at Journalist’s Resource, that’s who. JR is a project of the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, and they spend their time examining the new academic literature in media, social science, and other fields, summarizing the high points and giving you a point of entry. Recent papers from academe have continued to highlight tensions over letting citizens into the news process, as well as the need to be more open and transparent with the public. Here is a sampling of recent academic studies: The paper examines how much citizen participation there really is in the realm of news by looking at the dynamics of 32 “systems” — from Reddit and Slashdot to YouTube, CNN iReport and The Guardian — and analyzing four case studies in how stories developed and were reported.
