Abstract Although valuable empirical research had been done on individual journalists, aspects of some of the results in international surveys remain puzzling at times. This paper argues that organisational and institutional factors should be taken into account to make the existing data more meaningful. An approach to this is suggested in this study of the new newsroom of the West Australian in Perth, and comparing it to the newsrooms of a German regional newspaper. By looking at the West Australian 's new newsroom, the linkage between newsroom layout and final print product becomes clearer.
