If you're here, the following statement probably won't come as a surprise: The digital news landscape is changing rapidly. And one bellwether of that change? Reports, white papers and long-form articles from researchers, think tanks, educational institutions and leading luminaries.
But of course, it can be difficult to keep up with all that information as it's published. So we at Project CITRUS wanted to help by creating this ongoing repository. We'll be updating the list below semi-regularly — so be sure to pin this post and check back for more. (If there's an interesting report or link we've missed, let us know on Twitter.)
