What influence do search engines, social networks and news aggregators have on the public and the free formation of opinion? We explore this question in our Information Intermediaries Research Monitor. The Monitor reviews current developments in the field of digital information intermediaries and provides an overview of new scientific publications, the status of current projects and the results of the latest research. Furthermore, these research findings are placed in a broader socio-political context. The Monitor is a practical guide to an extremely topical, dynamic and complex field that impacts us all.
We publish the Information Intermediaries Research Monitor on behalf of the State Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia.
All editions can be downloaded free (German) of charge from the website of the Media Authority and from our own website.
Since June 2018, the Research Monitor has been published every four months. The Monitor can also be subscribed to as a newsletter here (German).
