The State of Technology in Global Newsrooms was conducted by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ). ICFJ is at the forefront of the news revolution, offering programs that empower journalists and en- gage citizens with new technologies and best practices. ICFJ’s networks of reporters and media entrepreneurs are transforming the eld. We believe that better journalism leads to better lives. Since 1984, ICFJ has worked with more than 100,000 journalists and media managers from 180 countries.


Surveys of journalists and newsroom managers were conducted in twelve languages and 130 countries. Separate surveys were developed for journalists and newsroom managers. Before the surveys were fielded, the items were vetted by the project’s advisory board and other professionals. The surveys were pretested and revised before being administered. The journalist and newsroom survey instruments were translated into twelve languages—Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. The translated surveys were reviewed by people proficient in each language prior to being fielded.
