What are the characteristics of online newspapers in Israel? How do they contribute to public discourse? What is their relationship to traditional print newspapers? How do they influence the profession and culture of journalism? These and other questions are discussed in this anthology on online newspapers in Israel, edited by Dr. Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler.
The articles in this collection survey web-based journalism in Israel—both general and sectoral (in Russian and Arabic, as well as publications for women). Written by researchers in communications, journalism, culture, law, and political science, the articles discuss issues related to the regulation and oversight of online journalism, such as libel and journalistic ethics, and address phenomena unique to the online medium, notably talkbacks and the blogosphere. The articles also examine evolving journalistic practices, and ponder the future of traditional media outlets—printed newspaper and public broadcasting—in the online age.
This anthology was published in cooperation with the Borda Center for New Media and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The subject at hand was a major factor in the decision to employ an e-book format, which was new at the time of publication. This was one of the first electronic books published in Hebrew.
