Online journalism survey by Reynolds Journalism Institute
For our readers and users who have an interest in online news sites and community journalism, we have a survey that we would like you to take.
Reynolds Journalism Institute is doing a research project on local news sites and online community. On their website it states their mission as "reconnecting journalists and citizens around the importance of journalism in a democracy, and using technology to enhance methods that help journalists reach citizens in many ways."
The institute is part of the University of Missouri and the Missouri School of Journalism.
RJI reached out to Sacramento Press to participate in their research and created a survey tailored to our site.
The survey has 36 questions, 22 of which directly deal with Sacramento Press. The remaining questions touch on current events and demographic information.
The survey will ask you about how useful Sacramento Press is, how you benefit from it, how often you visit the site, the quality of coverage, your satisfaction with Sacramento Press, and whether or not it is engaging.
It also seeks to get your opinion about online community, users interacting with journalists and commenting on articles.
It is completely voluntary and confidential. You have the option of leaving questions blank or stopping the survey altogether if you don’t feel comfortable with it. You will not be contacted after the survey unless you choose to include your e-mail address.
If you can spare 10 minutes of your time to complete the survey, it will help with the research to improve journalism and technology to better serve you and news consumers.
