A systematic review of constructive and solutions journalism research


Abstract: Academic activity surrounding constructive and solutions journalism has surged in recent years; thus, it is important to pause and reflect on this growing body of work in order to understand where the field can and should go in the future. We conducted a systematic review of existing literature on solutions and constructive journalism (N=94), in an effort to 1) describe the state of this field by identifying the patterns and trends in the methodological and conceptual approaches, topics, institutions, countries, and practices involved in this research, and 2) illuminate potentially important gaps in the field and suggest recommendations for future research.
