IRE members invited to participate in transparency survey

IRE members are invited to participate in a research project conducted by the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The purpose of the study is to investigate journalists’ attitudes toward transparency in the news industry. This research is designed to understand how journalists comprehend, apply, and perceive the concept of transparency in a professional environment.

This study seeks to survey a large, national sample of professional U.S. journalists. The research is guided by these questions:

  1. How do U.S. journalists understand transparency as a professional value?
  2. How do U.S. journalists perceive transparency as an ethical norm?
  3. How do journalists practice transparency in their work?
  4. What are the limits of transparency (e.g., how much transparency is feasible, appropriate, and required for enhanced credibility, trust and engagement)?
  5. How is transparency managed in news organizations?

Questions about the survey can be directed to Peter Gade at pgade@ou.edu.
