An increasing number of journalists are favoring digital mediums to break news, according to the latest Oriella Digital Journalism Study.

The study surveyed 550 journalists in 15 countries and found that a third of them had a “digital first” policy. The study also found that a fifth of journalists surveyed considered citizen journalism as credible as mainstream reporting.

More news outlets are tapping into the mobile and tablet markets as well, with 40 percent of responders now offering their content through apps. Journalists using social media for sources has also become more common, but the majority still prefer more conventional means of gathering news sources.

The statistics are hardly surprising and confirm that news outlets are trending toward digital and multiplatform content delivery, as well as embracing content created by citizen journalists.
