While society has more tools than ever before to contrast information, the massive amount of disinformation that circulates in media and social media drives us to what has been called the era of distrust. Trust in institutions, companies and media periodically decreases. Defined as a fundamental feature in interpersonal relations and an element that makes work in organizations possible, trust is now the focus of several media dynamics and campaigns who want to recover the reliability of a target that lives in the digital sphere. How are media companies addressing this challenge? How the digital dynamics promote or damage trust? Which effect could have this distrust in democracy? Which are the challenges of digital citizenship regarding trust? <em>Tripodos</em> issue 54 aims to answer these questions inviting scholars who study and work in the areas of journalism, advertising, communication and digital media to send their manuscripts.</p> <p><a href="">Read the complete call for papers</a></p> <p><strong><em>Tripodos:</em></strong></p> <p>- Is indexed in<span class="st"> SCOPUS and in Web of Science (WoS) - Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) database</span>.</p> <p>- Q3 in the 2020 SJR Scimago Journal &amp; Country Rank.

The promotion of transparency and citizen participation by political organizations might be a useful communication strategy. However, previous academic studies have not paid much attention to political parties in assessing openness, transparency, and accountability. Rather, they have focused on administrations. This article not only explores transparency but also the rest of the open government principles, these being participation and collaboration, as performed by political organizations, and as new communication strategies. The paper will argue that political parties should implement these ideas because of their public role but also to demonstrate honesty and integrity to the electorate. The implementation of transparency, accountability, deliberation, decision-making and collaboration by Spanish and Portuguese political parties has been analysed through a detailed study of the information available on their websites. The results of this analysis show that political parties are still far from being open and should focus especially on developing principles that involve citizen interaction. Although transparency was the most developed aspect, further promotion of participation and collaboration would imply a paradigm shift in how parties communicate with the electorate.</p> 2023-03-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tripodos
