The journal is the following databases: EBSCO (USA), DOAJ (Lund University, Sweden), Redalyc (Mexico), Dialnet (Spain); and is indexed by the CINDOC-CSIC in DICE, ISOC, RESH, Office of Latin American Education, OEI according to its initials in Spanish; Dulcinea, etc. In Spain the journal is a reference in the Directory of Index of Spanish Periodicals of Social and Communication Sciences, IN-RECS, of the University of Granada, UGR.

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee I" content="This article offers extensive research on the status of journalistic self-regulation in Europe, through an excellent sample: Austria, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, France and Poland. The methodology and the network of specialists involved in this research have made this work an essential point of reference in its field of study and the generation of knowledge. The article reveals the lack of regulation on digital journalism Europe and the imbalance in the use of regulation tools in the various countries under study: some are closer to the German regulation trends and others are closer to the French model. The hypothesis is confirmed by the results which demonstrate that journalistic self-regulation is not evolving at the pace demanded by the journalistic profession in the 21st century, taking into account that the development in the implementation of regulations mainly occurred in the 1990s, although in Austria the development started in the 1960s. This research should be carried out in all the European countries to obtain a complete image of the reality of the regulations in European journalism. Undoubtedly, this research has become relevant for future studies in this field. - Maria Gabino, Ph.D. - Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí, Mexico."/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="This article is interesting and the result of an international comparative research. It is an examination of the current situation in the area of self-regulation and regulation, and makes some questions about the journalistic work in the different media.The comparison of the self-regulation and regulation systems to exercise the journalistic profession is interesting and necessary, precisely because of the massive penetration of the media in people’s everyday life thanks to the new technologies and their reach. The disappearance of borders also involves problems and challenges which are not addressed by this specific research but will have to be examined later.The large number of countries and media addressed in this research is outstanding. This is a comprehensive work that opens many relevant questions: how will the responsibilities of online journalism be addressed in the future? How is self-regulation operated and understood? How are journalistic ethics and social responsibility incorporated into journalists’ routines and practices?The only aspect (also interesting) that appears in the conclusions and is not presented as part of the results is the opinion of journalists themselves, perhaps due to the length limitations. I recommended its publication. – Lorena Antezana-Barrios, Ph.D. - University of Chile."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="Abstract: This article’s objective is to compare the self-regulation systems of the journalistic profession in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, France and Poland. From the analysis of several cases and the situation in these seven countries, several items are compared: the existence of ethical codes, of readers’ and viewers’ ombudspersons, of press and audiovisual councils, as well as the level of associations and trade unions in the journalistic profession. The results reveal the absences in the European systems as well as steps towards the implementation of self-regulation tools to regulate the journalistic profession, mainly in the field of print and broadcast media. In most of the analyzed European countries, online journalism lacks of self-regulation, except those initiatives which have been implanted in their matrix print or broadcast media."/>
