Abstract

Over the last years, the content production for multiple platforms became a new reality in different newsrooms introducing new work methods and practices related to the digital environment. In this article, we intend to understand how this is being operationalized in Portuguese newsrooms that produce printed editions, focusing on the changes observed in production routines and on journalists' adaptation to those transformations. This research intends to shed light on how the journalistic community perceives the current changes and the need to produce content for different media. To achieve these aims a survey was conducted among newspaper journalists in managerial positions in the local and national press. Results show that there is still a strong print culture in Portuguese newsrooms. Nevertheless, the shift towards convergence is visible in the strategic implementation of editorial routines and practices. Reporters are also encouraged to join digitalisation and convergence.
