Literature database on media self-regulation and accountability

The MediaAcT consortium has collected a comprehensive literature database, containing international publications on the topics of media self-regulation and accountability. At the moment, more than 850 titles in various languages form the foundation of the database, which is supposed to be enhanced throughout the next phases of the research project. The collection of literature is meant to bring structure into the field of media accountability research, and to assist academics, students and interested citizens in their own literature review.

The collection of data for the literature resource constituted a central part of MediaAcT's first project phase, which aims at evaluating the status quo of media accountability and media accountability research in a comparative perspective. The literature review also resulted in a collection of state-of-the-art reports for each of the 13 MediaAcT countries. These reports will be published in book form early in 2011.

More information on the literature database can be found here.
