An international news consumption study from The Associated Press and the annual "Newsroom Barometer" survey of newsroom strategies are among the exclusive research offerings now being prepared for the World Editors Forum, to be held in Sweden in June.
Participants of the World Editors Forum, the annual conference for senior newsroom personnel from around the globe, will get the first look at The AP's new international study of news consumption habits, which will be released during the first session of the WEF, the annual meeting for senior news executives from around the world.
The session will also feature, for the second year, the Newsroom Barometer, an international survey of editors-in-chief conducted by WEF, Reuters and Zogby International. The barometer focuses on editorial quality, multi-media content, audience participation and the future of journalism.
More than 1,500 newspaper editors, chief executives, publishers and other senior newspaper executives are expected to attend the World Editors Forum, the World Newspaper Congress and Info Services Expo 2008, the global summit of the world's press organised by the World Association of Newspapers and the World Editors Forum. Full details of the events, to be held from 1 to 4 June in Göteborg, Sweden, are available at here.
