Jan 2011 Update

January 14, 2011

While I have had many inquiries about articles people have thought of writing for the journal they have mostly been suggestions about articles that are really commentary on media practice, rather than being articles that use journalism as a methodology to explore something other than journalism itself. As this is the feature that distinguishes this journal from other academic journals, such as the Australian Journalism Review and the Pacific Journalism Review, I have declined and am still waiting for more appropriate contributions.

In June 2010 I visited several Australian universities to discuss the journal and found myself discussing confusion about ethics committees and the ERA process. This prompted me to explore the problems associated with getting journalism research through ethics committees, and I have written an article on the topic that will hopefully be published in 2011.

Presenting about the journal at the Journalism Educators Association of Australia Conference in Sydney in November and at the Media, Investigative Journalism and Technology Conference in Auckland in December was rewarding and yielded expressions of interest from a wide range of journalists and journalism academics, so hopefully more will be happening in this space soon.
