O The Journal of Media Innovations (2020), online first, inclui um artigo de Dora Santos Silva, investigadora do ICNOVA (NOVA FCSH) intitulado “Paradigmatic innovation in European cultural journalism: the pursuit of sustainability”.
Neste artigo, a autora confirma a hipótese de que a inovação nos media acontece primeiro no domínio do paradigma (e só depois na componente editorial ou social, por exemplo). O modelo de negócio e os valores de cada projeto são a alavanca de inovações bem-sucedidas noutros domínios.
This article examines paradigmatic innovation (innovations in business models, mindsets and organizational values) in European cultural journalism. I hypothesize that paradigmatic innovation acts as a driver for innovations in product, process and positioning, and address two research questions: 1) How are the media innovating regarding their paradigm, both general and specifically in the culture section? 2) How does paradigmatic innovation affect the overall editorial positioning, including cultural scope and coverage, product and processes? Findings suggest that we are witnessing a paradigm shift in business models in the digital environment, challenging traditional boundaries related to editorial and branded content and expanding the revenue sources beyond the editorial core. I conclude that media innovation is firstly a paradigmatic innovation which impacts sustainability, the editorial products and processes, as well as brand positioning and extensions. The article proposes four types of paradigmatic innovation based on the analysis.
