The Virtual Center for Global Media Transparency, created by Dr. Katerina Tsetsura, is a place where you can find all information related to research and practice of media transparency.
The goal of this Virtual Center is to serve as a global virtual hub for all research initiatives and practice-oriented projects that relate to media transparency. This Virtual Center provides an online platform for researchers, practitioners, and media experts, as well as global specialists and the general public from around the world to discuss media transparency and to engage in research collaborations, practice-centered investigations, and ongoing conversations about the roles and functions of the media in the global world. Feel free to browse the website, read the latest research, and contact the authors for more information.
Media transparency is a building block for professional media development that is based on trust between the media and the audience (Tsetsura & Kruckeberg, 2009). Dr. Katerina Tsetsura has been researching media transparency for more than 15 years. The current five-year project expands and enriches our understanding of media transparency from the perspectives of both, journalists and public relations professionals and helps to grow global media transparency research by developing a theoretically grounded and methodologically solid framework that will result in a series of comparative studies on media transparency worldwide.
