CONEWS: A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH TO ONLINE NEWS STORIES

Daniel Schneider, Jano de Souza, Ercilia de Stefano

Abstract

In this paper we present the CoNews framework, a hybrid approach to publish online news stories, consisting of the combination of news entries extracted from authoritative sources - retrieved from news search engines - with blog articles and user-submitted less-authoritative stories. Some of the goals of this research include experimenting with new forms of mass communication and editorial control as well as improving users' access to the ever-expanding news information available to them. By creating an appropriate environment, we encourage users not only to become a more active audience for news stories and other issues, but also to contribute with his/her own articles to the body of knowledge.
