Continual and radical changes in the newspaper market have made it increasingly difficult for publishers to maintain the balance among delivering quality editorial products, running newsrooms efficiently, and trying to keep costs down. A number of publishers are reorganizing their newsrooms in an effort to keep this balance. Ifra commissioned a research series entitled “Internal Reorganisation for Publishing Houses” in order to gain greater insight into the practice of editorial reorganization in newsrooms across Europe.
