Digital Journalism is edited by Professor Bob Franklin.

Digital Journalism is an international, peer reviewed journal published by Routledge, Taylor and Francis, which provides a critical forum for scholarly discussion, analysis and responses to the wide ranging implications of digital technologies, along with economic, political and cultural developments, for the practice and study of journalism.

Radical shifts in journalism are changing every aspect of the production, content and reception of news; and at a dramatic pace which has transformed ‘new media’ into ‘legacy media’ in barely a decade.

These crucial changes challenge traditional assumptions in journalism practice, scholarship and education, make definitional boundaries fluid and require reassessment of even the most fundamental questions such as “What is journalism?” and “Who is a journalist?”
