YouNDigital Project: knowledge databases map Youth, News, and Digital Citizenship

The YouNDigital project is anchored on a robust framework, with one of its key components being a meticulous systematic literature review conducted in accordance with the PRISMA protocol. This review is centered on the project's three core concepts: youth, journalism, and digital citizenship.

The initial phase of this ambitious research initiative was dedicated to gaining a profound understanding of the academic landscape. To achieve this, the team delved into the Web of Science Core Collection and Scielo repositories. This strategic choice allowed to conduct a comprehensively analysis of scholarly works produced since the beginning of the new millennium untilthe present day, with a particular emphasis on the last ten years.

By focusing on this ten-year window, the researchers aimed to capture the transformative impact of digitalization on society and its evolving dynamics. The results also enable to forecast the trajectory of future research in this crucial field.

The outcomes of this extensive research phase have been meticulously documented in a comprehensive report, which is now available in both Portuguese and English - here. This report not only sheds light on current trends and research gaps but also provides valuable insights into the multifaceted interplay between youth, news, and digital citizenship in today's rapidly evolving digital landscape.

Within the scope of the project, a non-systematic database was also created, taking as a basis the knowledge of the team and other recommendations. The non-systematic database is open to new contributions here.
