New Guardian digital focus to center on ‘open journalism on the Web’


The Guardian has announced a new effort to transition from a print-centric approach to digital, “placing open journalism on the Web at the heart of its strategy.” The approach will include investments in digital (including a new U.S. operation, based in New York), emphasis on mobile, and changes to the weekday paper to account for shifting readership and advertising. “We are expanding into America and continuing to pioneer what we call open journalism – editorial content which is collaborative, linked into and networked with the rest of the Web,” Guardian Editor-in-Chief Alan Rusbridger said. || Earlier: Janine Gibson to lead Guardian’s new digital operation in USA
