    Nyhetsverkstans informationsbehov: en domänanalys av Gefle Dagblad2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This two years master’s thesis consists of a domain analysis on the local Swedish newspaper Gefle Dagblad (GD). The domain analysis was developed by the Danish library and information scientist Birger Hjørland. The purpose of this theory is to understand the information behavior of individuals by studying the social and collec-tive context which surrounds this person. According to Hjørland, four different areas need to be studied in order to analyze a domain. These areas consists of the domains information structure and it´s ontological, epistemolog-ical and sociological dimensions. The main goal of this thesis is to examine how these areas are constructed within GD and how this affects the information behavior of the journalists working there.The empirical material gathered for this analysis is based on interviews with seven journalists working at Gefle Dagblad.The study shows that there are common processes within GD which influence the information behavior of the journalists working at GD. The newspapers common goal to produce news that interests their readers drives them to constantly search for information about their ontological dimension, their knowledge area. The episte-mological viewpoint affects how they gather this information and how the journalists relate to their sources. The competition from other media organizations, which is a part of the domains sociological dimension, makes the journalists want to work faster to find information, which can ensure that GD is the first newspaper to publish a specific piece of news.The work process of the journalists gives rise to a never ending information needs. Information is a vital part in managing their work tasks. The investigation of the newspapers information structure shows that the most im-portant information systems in the domain are its digital archive and the editorial system Newspilot, since they gather information that is important for the work done within the domain. Communication with colleagues, sources and the audience also signifies an important exchange of information, and is done through various com-munication channels. The study also shows that colleagues are one of the most important information resources of the domain, because of the accumulated knowledge they collect through their journalistic work tasks.
