A year and a half after the appearance of the first cases of contagion, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an important object of study for researchers in media and journalism studies.
During this time, the news media and its professionals have adapted their practices to meet the challenges of reporting on a pandemic with unknown consequences, while governments and health authorities have faced the difficult task of managing the communication of their decisions. For their part, citizens have sought information from different sources to understand and act in different waves of the coronavirus crisis.
Along with this, dialogues denying the virus have proliferated, and misinformation has become a problem in pandemic management; at the same time, political discourse has become more polarized and public freedoms have been questioned.
This Topical Collection aims to bring together works that address these issues, but this Topical Collection is not limited to these topics. We want this collection to also serve as an opportunity for reflection on the changes and challenges of journalism in the post-COVID era.
Themes to be addressed in this Topical Collection of Journalism and Media: - News coverage of COVID-19: news agenda setting and framing; - Media and journalistic roles in coronavirus times;- Disinformation and infodemic;- Political communication and campaigning during COVID-19; - Trust for news on coronavirus;- The role of social media as an information source during pandemic;- Public health communication and civic engagement;- COVID-19’s impact on news consumption patterns;- Impact of limitations on press freedom in journalistic practice;- Information quality in COVID-19 news coverage;- Media and Journalism in the post-COVID era: challenges to face.
