'Disasters, cyclones and communication' edition deadline extended



Peer reviewing and editing of the edition 24(1) "Disasters, cyclones and communication" of Pacific Journalism Review is currently underway.

The deadline was extended until February 28, 2018.

This edition will be published in July.

The edition deadline was further delayed due to the fact that both editors, David Robie and Philip Cass, were on annual leave through January. Also, we wished to allow submissions of papers presented at the Second Climate Change Conference at Victoria University of Wellington on February 21-23.

This edition is being produced in collaboration with IKAT research journal of Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. Papers can include but are not restricted to:

  • Climate change communication
  • Extreme weather and crisis journalism
  • Climate crisis and journalism strategies
  • Disaster survivor narratives and storytelling
  • Social media and national emergencies
  • Disaster communication and normative media
  • Climate change refugees and relocation
  • Elite media and climate change realities
  • Facilitative, collaborative or radical climate journalism alternatives?
  • Political economy of climate media in Asia-Pacific
  • Teaching climate crisis journalism

The above list is a guideline and other related topics will also be considered. The journal has an unthemed section and other papers related to journalism studies, and journalism education, theory and practice will also be considered.

Deadline for the next edition of Pacific Journalism Review is July 20. Upload submissions here.
