If you are a Wikinews reporter in any language who has done original
reporting any time in the past two years, we would like you to complete a
the costs of doing original reporting. Even if you have done
original reporting and spent no money directly, we would like you to report
this. This research is being done by people affiliated with The Wikinewsie
Group ( http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikinewsie_Group ) to assess the
level of current funding going into Wikinews original reporting, who is
paying for it and what the outcomes for the money spent are. We hope to be
able to use this information to better assist reporters in doing original
reporting, finding funding through external grants to support it, and to
better understand the inherent value in original news reporting.
To original reporters, thank you for taking the time to answer the survey.
If you have question about the research, please get in touch with me and I
will be happy to discuss it.
