About me About me

Javier Díaz Noci. Born in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Basque Country, Spain).

I studied Journalism at the University of the Basque Country (1982-1987), where I presented my PhD dissertation in History, under the supervision of Prof Joseba Agirreazkuenaga, on the history of the Basque-language press. I studied Law at the same University (1992-1996), and got also a Diploma in Advance Legal Studies (1996-1998), equal to a Master in Law, and hold a PhD in Law as well 82016). After teaching as a lecturer at my alma mater, I moved to Barcelona in 2008, to the Pompeu Fabra University, where I am a full professor on Communication. I have been visiting researcher at the universities of Reno, Nevada (USA, 1997), Oxford (Basque Visiting Scholar, 1998-1999) and Federal University of Bahia (Brazil, 2005 and 2008). I have taught several courses on newswriting, online journalism and qualitative research methods, specially applied to online communication.

My main research interests are three: online journalism and online news, history of journalism (specially Basque-language press and Spanish-language networks on Early Modern history), and copyright and news reporting.

I am a fluent speaker of Spanish, Basque, Catalan, English, Portuguese and Italian, and can read in French. I am the first scholar on communication of the Catalan universities according to the H-Index, out of only three colleagues on the field.
