Last week, The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ) published this year’s Digital News Report. Since 2012, the RISJ has been publishing an annual report on the consumption of traditional and digital news across different countries. It is now one of the largest comparative studies of online news habits ever carried out and reveals national differences in our online behaviour.
Over the last couple of months, we’ve been beavering away to help the report’s editor, Nic Newman, and his team of designers and web developers to publish the 2012 and 2013 content on a website for the first time. The site launched last week on 20th June and there’s been some great press coverage. Nic also had the following to say:
“We set out to make the best report site ever – and we’ve done that. It looks fantastic, is easy to navigate and I’m proud of the content too.”
Nic Newman, Editor of The Reuters Institute Digital News Report
We agree – the site looks great and, with the first 24 hours since launch showing 5,000 hits from a spread of countries, plus 800 downloads of the PDF report, its launch has been been a success also. Find out more about what we did by taking a look at our case study on the project.
