Journalism Research News is back – but with fewer resources

Journalism Research News is returning from a summer break. However, due to a limited budget, our activities in the autumn 2018 will be somewhat reduced.

Some changes

During the coming months, we will continue to update our monthly research lists. These gather all academic research related to journalism from different journals and research institutions from around the world.

Every now and then, we will also continue our main activity, that is, reporting on new studies. We want to keep writing about interesting research to those inside and behind the paywalls of journals.

Unfortunately, most of our activities have to be cut down. Calls for papers, academic job listings and most of the social media activity will cease for the time being. Our email newsletter will be sent only when we have something new to tell about.

Looking forward

As you are reading this, we are planning for and seeking new funding. We hope to get a steady financial base for our work in the coming months. We’ll let you know as things progress.

We hope you will have an inspiring and a productive autumn! Please get in touch if you have any questions, comments or ideas.

Best regards,
Pasi Ikonen and Turo Uskali of JRN
