Title Theoretical Definition of the features of Cyber Journalism: elements of digital communication Summary Studying cyberjournalism (online journalism), as a new medium, must be firmly based on a basic theoretical research in order to define clearly the concepts and characteristics that define that new phenomena. In this article, we explain the theory and trends around those concepts: hypertext, interactivity, multimedia language and memory. We also refer to the methodological currents used to measure and study those characteristics. As a conclusion, we defend that we are in front of a new medium with new characteristics which, correctly defined, could be empirically observed, and so we could also establish the generical typologies. Keywords Online journalism. Hypertext. Interactivity. Multimedia. Memory.
