Abstract [sv]

Syftet med forskningsprojeketet REGPRESS var att förstå vilken roll medier spelar i södra Sverige.

Den regionala pressen har haft en stark närvaro lokalt och har varit en del av det regionala livet sedan 1841. Tryckta medier har generellt haft betydande inflytande i samhället som tredje statsmakt. Dagspressen har länge bedrivit kritisk granskning av samhällsföreteelser och myndighetsutövning samt agerat för att bidra till ökat samhällsengagemang i regionen.

I dag står dagspressen inför en rad utmaningar, så som ökad konvergens, att bevara och utöka sina upplagesiffror, sälja annonsutrymme samt bevara sina spridningsområden likaväl som att fortsätta bidra till den loakla demokratiska utvecklingen.

REGPRESS undersökte den regionala pressens roll och värde för läsarna i regioner relaterat  till vårt nutida mediesamhälle. Hur anknyter medierna till lokalbefolkningen? Hur garanterar och gynnar journalistiken en mångfald i medierepresenationen och motverkar diskontinuitet i den globala medieåldern? Var några  exempel på övergripande forskningsfrågor.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the project was to understand the role of regional media in southeast Sweden. The regional press have had a strong presence and has been part of the regional life since 1841.

The print media has for long had a significant influence in society as a fourth estate. The daily press has long been engaged in critical analysis of social phenomena and authority and acted to help increase community involvement. Even on the basis of this strong position the regional press face a number of challenges such as increased convergence and maintain storage numbers, selling advertising space and maintain their distribution areas.

The project  addressed the emerging issue of what role and value regional media has in our modern media society. How do the media connect with the local population? How does journalism ensure and promote diversity in the media presentation and prevents discontinuity in the global media age?REGPRESS is funded through a partnership between the Barometern Foundation, Linnaeus University and Fojo Media Institute (FOJO).

The project started in 2015 and completed in october 2017.
