This special issue, "Community Journalism Midst Media Revolution,” will explore the intersection of community, news and digital technologies. We invite manuscripts that explore community journalism – that is, newswork based on local, grassroots topics and for local, grassroots audiences – during this incredible transformation. This special issue will thread all of its works by the theme of change – change in community, change in the press, change in audiences, change in community story, and change in mediated forms and platforms.

This special issue of Digital Journalism welcomes contributions that reassess theories of journalism related to digitalization and the normative assumptions underpinning most of journalism studies, especially regarding the relationship between journalism and democracy. Although this call for papers takes processes of digitalization as its starting point, the special issue does not intend to promote deterministic theories. Contributions that critically question the assumed causal relationship between digital technologies and the changing practices and cultures of journalism are welcomed.
