We are glad to release the knowledge and community site on “Journalism, Users and Technology” as one of the deliverables of our SCAN-4J project. On this site we collect texts, practices, projects, tools, events, and people that are concerned with online journalism, particularly (automatic) analysis of user comments to journalistic articles. If you are missing something or have any comment, please contact us.
SCAN-4J stands for systematic Content Analysis of User Comments for Journalists. This project initiated our – in the meantime very intensive and productive – collaboration with the Hans-Bedrow-Institute for Media Research.
The release of the knowledge and community site corresponds to the end of the SCAN-4J, which was partly funded by Google. However, the timing shows our strong commitment in continuing the fruitful collaboration with the Bedrow-Institute on this current important and inherently multi-disciplinary topic. We consider it as a start than as an end. Expect more to come soon…
A short presentation of Prof. Dr. Maalej and his work was recently published in the “Alumni UHH-Magazin”, Edition 2016. Here is an excerpt in German language…
Our research associate and doctoral candidate Daniel Martens was recently interviewed for the column “Was macht eigentlich …?” (English: “What is he or she doing actually…?”) of the newsletter of the University of Hamburg. The column appears monthly and gets accessed by thousands of readers. It typically includes a 1-2 interviews with professors and senior staff. Ph.D. students are interviewed only rarely.
Daniel Martens talked about his current research interests and activities, his favorite places and activities at the university, and a mobile application he is developing together with 6 universities and the Local Ministry of Science, Research and Equality (German: Behörde für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Gleichstellung, Short: BWFG).
The complete interview (in German) can be read here.
