State Media Monitor is a project of the Media and Journalism Research Center, a research think tank that specializes in carrying out media research globally.

This website features the most complete state media database ever built. Collection of data for the State Media Database has been carried out since 2004 under the supervision of Marius Dragomir, a journalist, media expert and scholar who is the center’s director.

Overall, during this period, more than 600 researchers have participated in conducting research that has been used to create this database as part of various projects including Television Across EuropeMapping Digital Media and the ongoing Media Influence Matrix.

A consortium of experts led by the Media and Journalism Research Center carries out monitoring of the media outlets featured in the database, which is slated to be updated every year in Sep-Oct.

All the information and research carried out as part of the State Media Monitor can be accessed on the project’s page.
