Keeping journalism relevant in the age of “publishing for everyone”

The oldest journalism organisation in the US, the Society of Professional Journalists is looking at future challenges to journalism in the digital age.

Nieman Journalism Lab has published 10 points on how that can be achieved based on this report.

Any one of the points is a challenge; let’s take number 6 as an example:

Engage journalists and the public in a robust dialogue about the purpose, value and standards of journalism. Build public understanding of and trust in journalism, and educate citizens so they can practice journalism ethically.

All 10 lay the foundations that any journalist, editor or  owner should be considering as journalistic variations are emerging.
