Journalist’s Resource sifts through the academic journals so you don’t have to. Here’s their latest roundup, including five peer-reviewed papers, three of which look at journalists’ relationships with social media and a new study from researchers at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford that has implications for news branding and efforts to build public trust in journalism.
