Abstract [en]

News graphics as a part of journalism is something that’s constantly developing along with the news. That’s what we believed when we started this paper including its study. And we still believe the same, now that we’re done.News graphics itself is fairly common in Swedish newspapers, it can be seen every day in almost any major newspaper and is perfect for describing an event like the pollution of the sea over many years or just simply point out on a map where a city is located.This is one of the reasons to why we wrote this; another reason is that there’s almost nothing else written on the subject in northern Europe. It’s an empty space in media science, which is waiting to be explored.In our study we have examined four Swedish newspapers; Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Aftonbladet and Expressen over the month of November 2009, a total of 120 newspapers. We have looked at the news graphics in each paper’s news and economics section to examine if news graphics are affected by media logics and news value.The results of the study are quantified and what we did was that we converted the main theories of media logics and news valuing to suit our purpose – describing news graphics in the same way as the theories is used for describing the produced news.Our results indicate that news graphics are mostly used to describe crime, economics, politics and news regarding the environment. We also divided news graphics into different categories: maps, graphs and charts, illustrations and combinations of some of the three previously mentioned. The two most commonly used types of news graphics in our study are maps followed by graphs and charts.Our results also indicate that news graphics is highly affected by media logic seeing media logic as how we write and present news in newspapers i.e. personalization. But still, news graphics is not nearly as affected by media logic and news valuing as news articles in general.A conclusion is that the morning papers (Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet) had a higher amount of news graphic overall than the tabloids Aftonbladet and Expressen. But the news graphics in the tabloids was more affected by media logic in many ways.
