With the release of Participatory Journalism a couple weeks away, publishers Wiley-Blackwell have made available a sample chapter.

The chapter is the introduction to the book (PDF). It sets out the context for the volume and outlines the content of the subsequent chapters. Here’s an excerpt:

“This book is about the journey of the journalistic enterprise through an increasingly collaborative present and into a collective future that you will share,whether or not you ever set foot in a newsroom. It explores how newspaper journalists are handling the transition to a world in which vast numbers of strangers contribute directly to something that those journalists alone once controlled. The story is still being written, and you are the ones writing it.”
