About the Survey

Question Title

* 1. The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) invites you to participate in our survey on the State of Technology in Global Newsrooms. You are being asked to take part in this survey because you are a journalist.  The survey is being conducted worldwide and is available in 14 languages.

The study will update and expand ICFJ's 2017 State of Technology in Global Newsrooms  report-- the first of its kind to shed light on how news outlets and journalists are evolving to meet the demands of the digital era.  ICFJ will produce a new report based on the findings of the current survey.

We greatly appreciate your participation in this important study that will benefit journalists worldwide.

This survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete.

Respondents can enter a drawing and win one of 30 $100 Amazon gift cards. If you are interested in additional data analysis beyond the published report, we invite you to contact the principal researcher, Dr. Diana Owen, Professor, Georgetown University at owend@georgetown.edu.

Google News Initiative and Fusion are providing generous support for this survey.


Your responses are important to us.  We are interested in your answers--there are no right or wrong responses.  

  • All of your responses to the survey will remain confidential. You will be one of over 2,000 journalists taking part in the study; 
  • Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you can choose to leave the survey at any time without penalty.  
  • All data will be reported in the aggregate so it will be impossible to identify any individual respondent. Data will be stored securely at Georgetown University and will be accessible only to authorized project researchers.
  • Once you submit your completed survey, there will be no way to withdraw the responses from the study because the survey contains no personally identifying information.
