      *Making Online News -- Volume 2**
      Newsroom Ethnography in the Second Decade of Internet Journalism*

Edited by David Domingo and Chris Paterson

Online journalism has taken center stage in debates about the future of 
news. Instead of speculating, this volume offers rich empirical evidence 
about actual developments in online newsrooms. The authors use 
ethnographic methodologies to provide a vivid, close analysis of 
processes like newsroom integration, the transition of newspaper and 
radio journalists
to digital multimedia production, the management of user-generated 
content, the coverage of electoral campaigns, the pressure of marketing 
logics, the relationship with bloggers or the redefinition of news 
genres. This second volume of Making Online News presents twelve all-new 
case studies of newsrooms around the world, including the United States 
of America, United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Zimbabwe and Malaysia.
