The World Editors Forum is the organisation within the World Association of Newspapers devoted to newspaper editors worldwide.
The Editors Weblog - www.editorsweblog.org - launched in January 2004, is a WEF initiative designed to facilitate the diffusion of information relevant to newspapers and their editors. It is the essential source for editors and senior news executives looking to stay abreast of the monumental changes affecting newspapers and journalism.
As surveyor of the newspaper industry, the Editors Weblog sees a robust future for the printed word. In making this future even stronger, newspaper editors need to learn about and implement the full variety of ‘new media’ in the everyday functions of their newsrooms. The combination of outstanding newspaper journalism with these new technologies enriches content and enhances the experience of the reader. Our goal is to make sure that editors everywhere understand the effects that ‘new media’ are having on journalism and to provide practical solutions for your newspaper.
Our daily job
Our staff does the dirty work for you, reporting on and analysing the latest developments in the rapidly changing newspaper industry. Every day, we read more than 50 sources from around the world to find the most relevant news for newspaper editors. We aggregate the latest news, give our own expert opinion, and follow up on the latest trends through interviews and case studies of the best innovations.
On a daily basis, our readers learn about the most recent developments in:
- print and online convergence
- newsroom management
- editorial quality
- citizen journalism
- social media…
- … and anything related to improving newspaper journalism
With more than 1,500 editors and senior news executives reading our articles every day, the Editors Weblog is always looking to improve our coverage of the global newspaper industry. Our main goal is to equip these editors with news and information that they can put to immediate use. We thrive on collaboration with newsrooms and strive to share their experiences with international colleagues. The Editors Weblog also acts as a conduit for newsrooms everywhere, establishing contact between editors of different regions so that they may form networks and learn from one another on a direct basis.
The Editors Weblog is always open to comments and feedback. If you have some ideas about how we could improve our reporting, drop us a line with your suggestions, a story idea, or even just a tidbit of information. With your help, the Editors Weblog will remain the primary resource for editors-in-chief determined to embrace the newspaper renaissance.
