Innovation Journalism, VINNOVA. Creating a world community based on democratic principles requires public trust and support in the innovation process, and this depends upon trustworthy coverage by the news media. Based on semi-structured interviews with editors and journalists and on analysis of the actual coverage, my research sets out to describe a pattern of professional norms, values and visions related to innovation journalism. Such a description can serve as a point of reference for scholars, for new journalists entering the discipline, and for the ongoing development of new tools and techniques related to innovative journalism.
