Abstract:

The media audience becomes more and more interested in participating in the news production process and the evaluation of journalistic work. Thus, participatory journalism fills imortant niches that traditional media cannot fill because of market pressure and profitability issues. Since participatory journalism can be seen as a chance for traditional media, we need to know more about it. Hence, we conducted a standardized quantitative online-survey among participatory journalists in Germany and compared our findings with results from the most recent German journalism study. Our basic research question is: How do participatory journalists differ from professional journalists, regarding their attitude towards journalistic ethics, journalistic quality, concerning motivations, perception of their identity and self-concept etc. Our study has identified significant differences but also similarities between participatory and professional journalists. Results suggest that despite significant differences between participatory and professional journalists it cannot be denied that participatory journalists contribute to public opinion building.
