Webbens vägar : om webbjournalistikens etablering och utveckling vid tre svenska regionala och lokala dagstidningar 1995-2013

Hinderson, Jan LU (2013)
Abstract
In this dissertion in Media History I study the history and development of online

journalism in three Swedish local and regional newspapers: Helsingborgs Dagblad,

Sydöstran and Ystads Allehanda. The starting point is historical: I have tried to

anchor the three newspapers' decision to start their online newspapers in their own

history and surrounding society. By following the three newspapers' work with the

Web from the first attempts to today's eleborated online newspapers, I try to give a

concrete picture of a development that does not follow a straight track. Rather I

In this dissertion in Media History I study the history and development of online

journalism in three Swedish local and regional newspapers: Helsingborgs Dagblad,

Sydöstran and Ystads Allehanda. The starting point is historical: I have tried to

anchor the three newspapers' decision to start their online newspapers in their own

history and surrounding society. By following the three newspapers' work with the

Web from the first attempts to today's eleborated online newspapers, I try to give a

concrete picture of a development that does not follow a straight track. Rather I

underscore how the management and online journalists instead make different

attempts to try to find new solutions to the problems in this new journalistic field.

Through my empirical studies (interviews and observations in the newsrooms)

and a review of the research literature, I study how the general features of web

journalism work concretely in a local context. This includes examining the news’

fast – and slow – cycles, how the form of web pages remediates other media, in

what ways online journalism forms a semi-dependent subfield in the journalistic

field, what an online journalist really does in his/her job, the introduction of a

paywall in one of the online newspapers, and how the three newspapers' web

journalism relate to the surrounding digital media ecosystem in the form of social

media. (Less)
