November 5th, 2012 | News | Alfred Hermida | No Comments

Participatory Journalism “offers a textured account of the whys and hows of participation from the perspective of the newspaper industry thus providing a valuable counterpoint to the many studies on citizen journalism,” says a review of the book in the Pacific Journalism Review.

The book is reviewed in the October 2012 issue of the journal by by Pradip Ninan Thomas, co-director of the Centre for Communication and Social Change at the University of Queensland, Australia.

Professor Thomas writes that the book “is a very useful contribution to the study of participatory journalism”.

He highlights chapter two on the tools and techniques broadly used by newspapers, saying it “offers a very useful overview of participation”.

Professor Thomas concludes by describing the book as “a tight well-structured, accessible text on the relationship between online newspapers and participatory journalism.”
