Media from A to Z

Media from A to Z

One of the tasks of the Hans-Bredow-Institut is to transfer gained knowledge to a wider public via publications. Such a project is the lexicon "Medien von A bis Z [Media from A to Z]", which offers research based information on developments in the media system. The volume is divided into a survey article and 160 keywords altogether. This enables referencing both through the alphabetical order of the individual articles and via topic areas such as journalism, media content, media business, media effects, media politics and media law. Accounts of media systems in selected countries and of important media companies are also offered.

The project relies to a great extent on the multidisciplinary qualifications of staff at the Hans-Bredow-Institut, many of whom have contributed to the volume.
