Research


I have specialized in online journalism, focusing on news production routines and contextual factors that constrain journalists at work and the development of the Internet as a news medium. Lately, I am part of research groups focusing on audience participation in online media and convergence among newsrooms. I also have followed the evolution of the Internet in Catalonia, my home country, with periodical reports on the social uses of the Net.

Here there is a list of my publications and conference papers, sorted by topic. Full documents and drafts are available when noted.
