Praise for Participatory Journalism: Guarding Open Gates at Online Newspapers

“The discipline of journalism studies is in dire need of approaches that move beyond zombie categories such as online/offline, hard/soft news, professional/citizen journalism. By investigating an emerging set of participatory practices in a truly cross-national context, the authors of this book show both theoretically and practically how the production of news is changing around the world.”
Mark Deuze, Indiana University; author of Media Work and editor of Managing Media Work

“A critical read for scholars and journalism practitioners alike interested in the one of the most significant changes sweeping the journalistic landscape in a Web 2.0 world: the shift from one-to-many mass media to two-way communication.”
Carrie Brown, assistant professor at the University of Memphis, Journalism,  13(3) 388–394, April 2012.

“The breadth and scope of the collaborative project is an extremely valuable one which unpicks the threads that lie at the heart of journalism and examines how those core threads are being rewoven in a digital age, where anyone with Internet access can be a publisher.”
Lily Cantor, University of Sheffield, UK,  Journalism Studies, 24 Feb 2012

“Participatory Journalism is hugely helpful for courses I teach. Also good reminder of how ingrained, slow to change j-culture is.”
Mark Hamilton, journalism instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, BC, Canada, via Twitter.
