About Our Research

RISJ Digital News Report
Research on the use of Voice Activated Speakers, from the Digital News Report 2018

How does the world engage with its news media? In a dynamically shifting global journalism industry, we track the ever-shifting trends, changes and advancements, aiming to connect rigorous academic research with the practical experiences of professional journalists, media managers and policymakers.

Our focus is on internationally comparative research, and we conduct and facilitate research that addresses the most significant issues facing journalists and media organisations in a rapidly developing industry.  

Our research is conducted by a team of in-house academics, along with Visiting Fellows, research associates, and in collaboration with other researchers, both across the University of Oxford and from other leading global universities. 

Support for our research comes from a variety of academic funding bodies, foundations, non-profit and NGOs as well as industry partners. Find out more about who supports us, and how you or your organisation can support our work, here.
