Resources: Testing a Wiki


We are continuously sharing useful resources on our Facebook group. Many great posts get lost in the stream of content.

That is why we have decide to try out a simple wiki page to store resources beyond news: open access books, articles, reports, and commentary. 

Please take a look at
this beta Wiki site. It includes all resources shared from the beginning of our FB group until November -- and it will be updated for December soon.

Let us know what you think and send any resources you would like to contribute to our way, to

#ICYMI. Some highlights from our Facebook group and beyond:
  • We are now officially supported by the Central European University, the Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS). This means that when we want to develop the network further by creating a better roster, by organizing events, and by supporting our joint efforts otherwise, CMDS will offer us institutional support in seeking grants and other funding. Let us know of any ideas for the future of the network!                                  
  • RIPE@2017 book project has begun. It will be titled Public Service Media in the Networked Society. The editors are Gregory Ferrell Lowe, Hilde Van den Bulck and Karen Donders. Contributors will include Mark Deuze and Graham Murdock, two of the keynote speakers in the RIPE@2016 conference. Keep an eye on the RIPE website and RIPE Facebook page for updates. PS: The RIPE books series can be downloaded for free as Open Access books in PDF format at the Nordicom website

We looked at the numbers for the end of 2016 and:
  • We are well over 200 members strong in the Expert Roster;  (here is The Questionnaire to join the network).
  • Our open Facebook group has grown quickly and  has 170+ members. The FB group is very active: plenty of content is being shared everyday, and each update usually reaches at least one third of the members.
  • This newsletter is regularly read by half of the members.
If you want to reach your colleagues - CfPs, recruitment, news, collaboration - please don't hesitate to use our platforms! The hub for more information:


European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is the world’s leading alliance of public service media, serving 73 Members in 56 countries. 
EBU Members run over 780 TV and 1040 radio services and broadcast in 123 languages to a potential audience of 1.03 billion people.
The RIPE network was founded in 2001 by a group of scholars and practitioners working on the future of public service media. 

It is an informal association that produces conferences and publishes research. 

This newsletter is about a project to map PSM experts around the world. Our goal is to create a continually updated online resource that anyone can access.
