How do you select your stories?

This is what we look for when searching for new articles:

International perspective

Readers in the Western world usually receive information about international news and events from a North American or European worldview. 360 enriches this viewpoint and delves deeper, allowing reporters worldwide to speak for themselves. This often reveals other compelling views and angles that broaden the reader's perspective.

Diversity and connectedness

Political movements, economic systems and natural disasters have global impact. But despite global flows of digital information, high-caliber stories too often remain within national borders. Barriers such as language and payment walls can also prevent otherwise excellent journalism from being widely accessible.

360’s selection offers an insight into events, visions and characters from all over the world. We cover a wide variety of topics so that we can keep surprising our readers, including  solid, riveting stories that will engage the reader in contrast to what is sometimes depressing world news.

Quality

As competition increases, it is more difficult for news organizations to invest time and money in strong, exclusive stories; while the demand for analysis, interpretation and background articles remains as great as ever.

By republishing quality articles from international media, forces can be joined internationally. Naturally, both the author and publisher are rewarded for their work, giving more room to invest in quality journalism.

Information

As a result of limited freedom of the press, digital fragmentation and contemporary phenomena such as fake news, the most important function of journalism is constantly under pressure. It is thus all the more important to make the work of reputable, knowledgeable authors available in all societies as widely as possible. We also accommodate marginalized voices and, for example, publish articles by journalists from censored areas.

Objectivity

We believe that looking at a story from different angles is the best way for readers to form an opinion about a phenomenon or event. That is why we as editors remain impartial, selecting stories that are well-founded and well-researched, or take a surprising approach. We are aware of the power of the media and are not tempted by hyped topics and clickbait potential.
