About us

The research group Journalism in Digital Transition of the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht conducts practice-oriented research into journalism in the Netherlands. This research is scientific in nature but always produces results that are valuable to the daily practice of journalism. Our field of work covers the journalistic field ('production'), the journalistic product ('form and content') and the meaning and role of journalism in society ('effect').

Our research focuses on the following themes:
