Mediensymposium 2021: Regulierung, Governance und Medienethik in der digitalen Gesellschaft  
Aufgrund zahlreicher Anfragen und der nach wie vor unsicheren Situation im Zusammenhang der Corona-Pandemie hat sich das Organisations-Komitee entschieden, das Mediensymposium 2021 als reine Online-Tagung durchzuführen. Weil Online-Tagungen im Vergleich zu klassischen Präsenztagungen mit grösseren Ermü-dungserscheinungen verbunden sind, haben wir zudem beschlossen, das Mediensymposium auf zwei Tage zu beschränken. Es wird neu am Donnerstag 10.6. und Freitag 11.6.2021 stattfinden. Aufgrund dieser Neuerungen und der dadurch ermöglichten Planungssicherheit wird die Frist für Einreichungen bis 28. Februar 2021 erstreckt. Erbeten werden sowohl theoretische wie auch empirische oder methodische Beiträge. Für Ihren Beitrag stehen 15 Minuten Vortragszeit zur Verfügung. Vortragsvorschläge sind als Extended Abstracts (1000 - 1200 Wörter exkl. Literaturverzeichnis) mit Angabe des Roundtables an mediensymposium2021@foeg.ch einzureichen. Die Ergebnisse des Review Ver-fahrens werden bis 31. März 2021 bekannt gegeben. Ausgewählte Beiträge des Mediensymposiums wer-den in einem Peer Reviewed Sammelband in der Reihe «Mediensymposium» publiziert.

The Worlds of Journalism Study (WJS) - Austria  
News More News Abstract The "Worlds of Journalism" Study is an academically driven project that was founded to regularly assess the state of journalism throughout the world. The principal purpose of the research project is to help journalism researchers, policy makers and practitioners better understand the changes that are taking place in the professional orientations of journalists, the constraints under which they work, and the social functions of journalism in a changing world. Such a study is especially relevant at a time of unprecedented change in public communication and dramatic transformation within the institution of journalism, all of which may have important ramifications for society and public discourse. The study therefore aims to assess the state of journalism in Germany, Austria and Switzerland – comparing and contrasting it to that in other societies around the world. In the first two waves of the project (2009-2011, 2014-2015), the study focused on differences in journalism cultures (role perceptions, epistemological orientations and ethical views of journalists), as well as on perceived influences on the news and journalists' trust in public institutions. The upcoming third wave (2021-2023) aims to continue these directions and incorporate both technological challenges and diverse sources of risk journalists and news organizations are facing.

Determinants of Journalism´s Democratic Quality: The Case of Austria´s Capital Vienna  
Abstract Media quality reflects how journalistic news outlets should perform to fulfil their democratic functions and measures to what extent they do so. While studies in Austria provide insights on the status quo of media quality based on democratic theory, it is widely unknown which factors on the institutional and organizational level of news organizations as well as on the individual level of journalists support or impede the emergence of normatively required journalistic practices. This project addresses this question by focusing on political journalism in Vienna. Utilizing a triangulated research design consisting of a quantitative content analysis, a quantitative survey and qualitative newsmaking reconstructions, the project aims to explain which factors and mechanisms enable or endanger media quality in terms of normative media performance standards, but also the representation of specific groups of actors in the media. In doing so, it both theoretically and empirically bridges CMC's projects "The Worlds of Journalism Study (WJS)", which explores journalists' working reality, and "Media Performance and Democracy (MPD)", which monitors media quality in Austria.

Communicating Science: Current Problems and Future Imperatives  
Abstract The relationship between science, media and the public sphere has changed fundamentally in recent decades. As late as the mid 1990s, the status of science reporting in the German-speaking countries was "stably marginal”. Today it is a firmly established component of media output – be it in the print, broadcasting or online sector. The number and volume of science pages, science supplements, science magazines, science programs and science blogs are steadily growing, while, in Austria, the public acceptance of science and research has been consistently low. This research focus therefore deals with both supply and demand of scientific information - past and present. Sub-project "Medical News in the Headlines of the Kronen Zeitung since 1959" As one of the daily newspapers with the highest reach worldwide, the popular newspaper Kronen-Zeitung shapes the public perception of health topics to a high degree. The purpose of this project is to examine how the amount and nature of coverage has changed over time and under which perspectives most frequently addressed topics were covered. The project is partly based on a database by DOSSIER. Considering the enormous impact of the COVID-19 crisis on public health as well as on public debate and democratic politics, a specific study deals with "Pandemics in the Headlines".

Implicit Media Effects  
Abstract Overweight and obesity are some of the greatest health challenges of the 21st century and are regarded as one of the principal causes of the cost explosion due to chronic illness. An important part here is played by the messages directed at children by the food industry through frequent advertising of unhealthy products. Despite the high level of topicality and relevance of the subject, the empirical basis for assessment of the effects on product preferences and children’s selection behavior due to implicit persuasion, for example in consequence of integrative forms of advertising such as product placement, is still very weak. Findings on the behavior of younger children gained in real reception and purchasing situations - with all the typically competing influences - are almost entirely lacking. The study meets both challenges with a unique field experiment using two age groups (between 3 and 8 years) in a real-world setting. This is expected to lead to significant conclusions with respect to implications for media and advertising literacy and to make a soundly based contribution to the international debate on the effects of implicit persuasion.
