本計畫的目的有四：第一、透過不同類型媒體之新聞人員進行深度訪談和問卷調查，深入比較不同類型媒體新聞工作者對數位環境的新聞產製認知和倫理實踐為何。第二，了解目前台灣報紙媒體轉型的科技採納，並探討媒體科技採納以及媒體對新聞報導的變化，是否影響到新聞專業的高低。第三針對上述科技、新聞工作和新聞倫理的變化，提出概念模式，並以理論檢測其間變化的類型。第四，根據深度訪談的結果，進行問卷調查，從倫理角度出發，嘗試分析新聞工作者利用數位工具蒐集遞送分享資訊的實際行為，與新聞產製和倫理歸因的關係，以了解台灣現階段新聞工作者面臨數位時代的倫理挑戰及因應之道。 New media technologies have transformed journalism practice in a profound way and Taiwan has not been exception. However, research on the impact of these technologies on journalism ethical is troublingly scant. The study combines a survey questionnaire and semi-structured interviews to elicit data on ethical challenges and dilemmas faced journalism practitioners in Taiwan. More than 1000 journalists and editors were surveyed to determine the presence and impact of both individual and universal codes of ethics in the digital era. The study has examined how journalists perceive, adopt and seek to embody their personal competence in their journalistic work. Secondly, the study has reexamined the journalistic work online to see if the challenges have transformed news workers’ moral conception of their routine news operation. Finally, the study also explores the relationship between the ethical orientations of journalists and how they identify the materials online can be moderated within newsrooms. The paper motivates for the application of the sociology of journalism ethics as a framework for examining ethical challenges and dilemmas faced by journalism practitioners when using new media technologies. It is argued that the practice of ethical journalism should be viewed as circumscribed by the interaction of a complex web of structural, institutional and socio-economic factors, both internal and external to the environment in which journalism is practiced.
