Visiting Scholar

We welcome Visiting Scholars to the Datafied News Industry (DANI) research project.

It is an opportunity for both junior and senior researchers within the fields of, for example, journalism studies, media management and economics, media and communication research, political science, and data science to engage with the project and with us. A Visiting Scholar must do research that aligns with the research of the DANI project. We give priority to potential Visiting Scholars who work toward exploring collaborations that result in co-authored publications.

Being a Visiting Scholar here means you are our guest and collaborator for a shorter period of time. There is no “template” for how long that period of time is (could be just a few days, could be a month), or for what exactly we do with that time. We do expect, however, that Visiting Scholars actively engage with the DANI project group and the general research environment. We also expect them to present and discuss their research – either in the Journalism and Democracy research group, in classes, and/or in public talks.

Do notice that we unfortunately cannot cover any expenses and cannot pay Visiting Scholars, and that we do not have unlimited space for visits.

What we offer is office space (with high-speed broadband), good company, a nice campus, and good possibilities for collaboration. You become part of a vibrant research environment at the Department of Communication and Arts at Roskilde University. The university is close to Copenhagen and there are good connections by train.
