Do you read academic work about journalism? Why or why not?

Here at Nieman Lab, we read a lot of studies, surveys, and reports about journalism. We try to pull out the most interesting bits — the research that sheds light on news avoidance, looks at what happens when newspapers apologize, analyzes what works for local TV on Facebook, explains why you might not want to call yourself a “storyteller,” and lots more. But academics who study journalism want to know how they can be more useful to practitioners — reporters, newsroom managers, producers, editors, audience folks, freelancers, product people, newsletter writers, etc. — so we’re asking you to fill out a quick survey on the topic.

I’ll preview results at an AEJMC panel on Friday, August 5. (Please come if you’ll be in Detroit for the conference!) We’ll share some findings on Nieman Lab, too.

Here’s that survey link again.
