The first place of the DGPuK journal award this year goes to Dr. Mario Haim. The prize was awarded for his essay in the M&K issue "Forschungssoftware in der Kommunikations- und Medienforschung
[Research Software in Communication and Media Research]" on quality criteria and recommendations for the development of research software in communication and media studies. The text was published in issue 1/2021 and is available
as an open access publication. The German Communication Association (DGPuK
) awarded the prize at its annual conference on 24 February.
Mario Haim is junior professor for data journalism at the University of Leipzig. His focus "computational communication research" includes the influence of data and algorithms on journalism, media use in algorithmically curated media environments as well as methodological research.
With the Journal Award, the DGPuK annually honours the best essays in the journals Publizistik, M&K and SCM. Two M&K authors were already among the winners in 2021. Philip Baugut and Katharina Neumann took first place with their text "Journalistische Verantwortungsethik und sexueller Missbrauch. Eine Untersuchung der Perspektive von Betroffenen auf Journalist*innen und deren Berichterstattung
[On the Ethics of Responsibility in Journalistic Reporting of Sexual Abuse. Examining the Perspective of Sexual Abuse Victims on Journalists and their Reporting]", published in M&K 4/2020.
Congratulations from the M&K editorial team and the entire HBI!
