Articles on Baltic media

Academic articles – in accessible languages – about Eastern European (print) media landscapes are rare. The last issue (2008 – 47) of the journal Informacijos Mokslai contains several articles on Nordic media landscapes, some of them covering the print media in the Baltic states.

Ainars Dimants covered the Latvian media. Swedish and other Scandinavians publishers have had a substantial influence on media and journalism in Latvia, increasing quality and making them more professional. In Latvia Swedish publisher Bonnier owns daily Diena and free daily 5 min, “the most popular daily in Latvia”.

Kristina Juraitė writes about developments in Lithuanian media, including the emerging free dailies in the last years. Auksė Balčytienė (Vytautas Magnus University, Lithuania) covers all three Baltic states.
