Welcome to the Knowledge Base about “Journalism, Users and Technology”. On this website we collect texts, practices, projects, tools, and people that are concerned with online journalism, particularly (automatic) analysis of user comments to journalistic articles. If you are missing something or have any comment, please contact us.

We created this Knowledge and Community Base as part of the prior SCAn-4J project, which stands for systematic Content Analysis of User Comments for Journalists. SCAn-4J was a cooperation between Applied Software Technology Group at the University of Hamburg and the Hans-Bedrow-Institute for Media Research. We also received a Google Research Award in 2016.

We continue maintaining this knowledge base in the course of our recently funded Forum 4.0 project.
