Newsroom Workers’ Job Satisfaction Contingent on Position and Adaptation to Digital Disruption: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
A survey of journalists in the United States (N = 1181) finds that job satisfaction during the era of digital disruption varies across job titles. Previous studies have examined job satisfaction of these job titles individually, but this study compares job satisfaction among four primary occupations in the newspaper newsroom. Desk workers demonstrate lower levels of job satisfaction than non-desk workers, while sports journalists report higher levels of job satisfaction than non-sports workers. Furthermore, online responsibilities appear to be negatively received by desk workers, yet positively received by sports journalists. Open-ended explanations and the quantitative survey results discuss the implications of the demands, adaptation skills, and autonomy of newspaper workers on job satisfaction.

A Follower-Centric Approach to Leadership in the Newsroom: The case of El País: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
This article analyses leadership in the newsroom of the Spanish newspaper El País as well as its impact on the craft of journalism more generally. Through 23 in-depth interviews, we try to elucidate how the newsroom constructs its leaders (in the newsroom, what does it mean to be a leader?), paying particular attention to the main skills considered to be necessary. According to our newsroom findings, not all heads of section or editors-in-chief are leaders, a fact that questions formal authority relations and proclaims expertise and know-how as discriminatory skills. This study emphasizes that the collective recognition of a leader is not an ultimate disposition, but can vary over time: consequently leaders who do not achieve the professional requirements of the newsroom can be denied the status, despite their expertise and experience. Our findings indicate that leaders at El País are those journalists (no matter what their positions) with strong capacities and skills (fundamentally experience, expertise and creativity) to manage form (relationships) and substance (contents) in the daily work of the newsroom. In short, journalists seen as leaders combine reiterated and strong qualities and merit, graphically reflected in the texts they have published for years in the newspaper.

The Times' subscription sales jump 200 percent since pivoting from breaking news - Digiday
Having a different edition ready for three, set times helps the 10-person digital marketing team to structure their efforts. “What has been revolutionary for us and editorial is that in changing to the editions’ publishing strategy and moving away from rolling news, we now have appointments to view with our subscribers and registered users that we didn’t have previously,” she added.

The marketing team carefully plans its communications with existing and prospective subscribers by taking a more hands-on approach in the daily newsroom meeting, or “conference” as it’s referred to internally, than it did in previous years. Here editorial staff discuss with members of the marketing team what stories are coming up in the week and how they plan to treat them. Decisions will be made on what kind of content will work for driving free registrations, or subscriptions, and where existing subscribers should be re-engaged to ensure they’re returning to the site.

News Cultures or “Epistemic Cultures”?: News Cultures or “Epistemic Cultures”?: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
In order to gain an understanding of journalists’ conceptions of what being factual means, the present work supplements the existing insights of journalism studies and the sociology of knowledge and philosophy with data about journalists’ beliefs regarding the importance of detached observation and reporting things as they are, spanning 62 countries (N = 18,248). In essence, our goal is to contribute to a future theoretical account of why journalists possess the beliefs that they do vis-à-vis truth-seeking and knowledge-acquisition. Data point to a significant relationship between reporters’ level of freedom and their conceptions of knowledge and reality. We discuss the implications of these findings for the debate about the possibilities of universality and context-dependence of journalistic fact-finding.

Journalism and Professionalism in Ethnic Media: Journalism and Professionalism in Ethnic Media: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
This article, focusing on journalists working for Turkish-language newspapers in the United Kingdom, examines the way that journalists working in ethnic media perceive their professional roles and performance. Ethnic media have different forms and functions to mainstream media and present different challenges and pressures for journalists, reflecting their communities’ consumption habits and social, economic and political circumstances. This study, based on interviews conducted with journalists and editors working for Turkish-language newspapers, suggests three conceptual dimensions that can be operationalized as a model to help understand ethnic media journalists’ professional roles and performance: perception of audience, relation to power and professional ideals. These dimensions, which may overlap in practice, aim to provide the basis for studying ideas and attitudes towards journalism and the context of production within ethnic media.

When Creative Potentials are Being Undermined By Commercial Imperatives: When Creative Potentials are Being Undermined By Commercial Imperatives: Digital Journalism: Vol 5, No 1
The aim of this paper is to explore and discuss how newsroom restructuring in favour of cross-media news production is changing news production practices and to what extent media-specific norms, values and practices impede the strategy for change. In doing so, we use the structuration theory of Anthony Giddens as theoretical framework. With his concept of the dynamic relationship between structures and agency, and the analytical division of structures into recursively organised rules and resources, we look at planned newsroom reorganisation in order to analyse aspects leading to its implementation as well as factors resistant to change. Overall, our findings show that conflicts between journalistic norms (accurately researching content) and values (reliably informing citizens on socially relevant topics), and the requirement to produce more content within an ever shorter time, influence the implementation of the intended cross-media news production. Moreover, interviewees suggest that in addition to allocative resources (notably financial and human resources), authoritative resources, such as competencies and expert knowledge, have been relevant for adaptation or maintenance of newsroom structures.

“If Nobody Gives a Shit, is it Really News?”: “If Nobody Gives a Shit, is it Really News?”: Digital Journalism: Vol 5, No 1
While a growing body of academic research explores the evolution of production practices within formal news organizations, much less attention is paid to how journalism schools are addressing the demands of the profession in the twenty-first century. Strains on the traditional routines, practices and unwritten rules of news production challenge those involved in professional development to rethink the standards and skills they prioritize as they transmit knowledge to the next generation of news workers. This paper explores some of these changes in a “learning newsroom” at one of the top journalism schools of the United States. The research is based on both qualitative and quantitative methods, including over 200 hours of ethnographic fieldwork conducted between January and June 2015, interviews with journalism graduate students and faculty members, content analyses of the articles published on the news organization’s website, and an online survey. I focus on the recent shift within my fieldsite from a “learning newsroom” framework to a “Content Lab” alternative envisioned as preparation for graduate students in journalism for a radically different media ecosystem than that which existed in the past. The professionalization process within the Content Lab reflects the eroding boundaries of the institution of journalism. Three interrelated trends stand out in this context: a shift in the educational emphasis from story content to story form; increasingly flexible professional standards concerning what qualifies as news, resulting from the greater emphasis on the audience; and a growing horizontality in the educational process.

Understanding fake news in 2016: Before the truth gets its pants on* – Jeanine Finn
Below is my effort at basic reading list on some good academic work discussing how people get their news, why they believe what they do, and how models from traditional news work may or may not apply to the social media world. People study this question in mass communication, but also within the disciplines of information science and human-computer interaction. This is a small slice of the research, but these are some articles and books that have been the most useful to me.
