Researching online journalism – the networked way

I’ve created a social network for anyone researching news and journalism. It’s at http://onlinejournalismresearch.ning.com/

It’s an attempt to provide a way for journalism students and academics to get in touch with others researching the same area, exchange ideas and tips, and ask for help on everything from finding relevant literature to sourcing contacts and the best research methods.

Research is traditionally a solitary, frustrating endeavour. It doesn’t need to be. If you work with journalism students, please encourage them to join the network and contribute a question or an answer.

If it helps, I’ll be hanging around trying to help as much as I can, and I’ll be inviting others to do the same.

Let’s get news research networked.
