During the last two decades of the 20th century, ICTs (Information Communication Technologies) have revolutionized newspaper organizations. As technology for the distribution of journalistic information in various forms has become more easily available, and with the Internet and the World Wide Web’s introduction into companies and households, the tendency has been for the larger media organizations and companies to have several publication channels at their disposal. This paper addresses the issue of workflow management in newspaper organizations that implement cross-media publishing.
