Funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities of Spain, this coordinated project (ref. RTI2018-093346-B-C31) explores, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the digital native media in Spain. Accounting more than a thousand titles in 2018, they are a type of news media in clear expansion, amounting already more than a third of the total digital media in our country. Despite this growth, digital native media remains largely unexplored by scholar research. The present project fills this gap: it plans to identify and characterise the existing models of digital native news media, in order to provide strategic references both for the consolidation of this sector of the journalism industry, and for its knowledge by the international scholar community. In brief, the general objective of the project is to study the market structure, business strategies, technological models, narrative formats, and innovation strategies in digital native media in Spain, to evaluate their regenerative potential in Spanish news media market. This project aims to carry out a detailed typological analysis of digital native media throughout Spain, with the purpose of characterising the diversity of their technological, economic and editorial models, and identifying the most successful variants. The project wants to explore in depth their structure and strategies, in order to identify and disseminate good practices that serve as a reference to the Spanish media industry.
