The "News, and Other Commodities" Topic Series includes many articles around international research. Series co-producer Andrew Grave reviews these articles and looks ahead to the concluding articles in the series on subjects from video news to researching West Africa.
As the FreePint Topic Series "News, and Other Commodities" draws towards its conclusion, I have been struck by the truly international nature of many of our recent articles.
Our forthcoming articles in the series have very broad appeal. In "Has Video News Come of Age?", Rachael Elliott explores its benefits and appraises the tools to locate this content. We'll also publish the conclusion of Shimrit Janes' in-depth report "Analysing the Market Landscape for People Information".
For many information managers, news solutions will include Nexis or Factiva. Building upon the FreePint product reviews of Nexis and Factiva, we pit these two heavyweight resources against one another in "Factiva and Nexis Compared". But for those who are considering their own solutions, our article on DIY content aggregation, based on an earlier webinar on the subject, seeks to answer many of your questions.
Following introductory sections, we'll also publish the full report on our flagship Annual Survey on News Needs and Preferences.
