New research project on crisis communication

A new third party funded research project on "Threats on the (Media) Agenda - Crisis Communication in the Process of News Selection" (German title: "Bedrohung auf der (Medien-)Agenda – Krisenkommunikation im Nachrichtenprozess") has been conducted at our institute since 1 October 2008.
In this regard, Prof. Georg Ruhrmann, Arne Freya Zillich and Roland Göbbel of the Institute of Communication Research Jena cooperate closely in a research group with Prof. Michaela Maier, Karin Stengel and Joachim Marschall of the University of Koblenz-Landau.


The project is dedicated to the question how politics and media observe international crises, how they attribute news values, and how news influence the process of such crises.
It combines content analyses of press releases, press and TV news with interviews of journalists, policy makers, military decision makers and recipients. With the aid of a compley methodical design, the project shows how the dynamical interplay of political, military and media actors causes the emergence of news, which are perceived as risk factors by decision makers of foreign and security policy.

The project, which has a duration of 24 months, is funded by the German Foundation of Peace research (DSF).
New publication: Media and Shares

Bertram Scheufele, professor at the Institute of Communication Research at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, analysed the role of the media at the market for shares. Representing the results, he published the work "Medien und Aktien" (VS Verlag) together with Alexander Haas.

20080803_neuerscheinung-scheufele-haas.jpgBoth scientists observe the relation between financial reporting of the media and the share prices and the trading volume of German companies, which are listed on the stock exchange, in the year 2000 and 2005. The chosen companies (inter alia Consumer Electronics, DaimlerChrysler, EM.TV, Lufthansa, Mobilcom) represent different industrial sectors and differ in statistical values (such as volatility, PER). In the first move the scientists analysed, how print media, programmes  (as "Börse im Ersten") and websites (as "Onvista) reporting on stock exchanges, informed their recipients of these companies and their stocks. The results of this progress were linked in a chronological relation with the stock prices and trade volume in the German stocktrading with the aid of time series in a second move.
