The deadline for the edition 24(1)

"Disasters, cyclones and communication" edition of Pacific Journalism Review has been extended until February 28, 2018.

This edition will be published in July.

The edition deadLine has been further delayed due to the fact that both editors, David Robie and Philip Cass, will be on annual leave through January. Also, we wish to allow submissions of paper presented at the Second Climate Change Conference at Victoria University of Wellington on February 21-23.

  • Climate change communication
  • Extreme weather and crisis journalism
  • Climate crisis and journalism strategies
  • Disaster survivor narratives and storytelling
  • Social media and national emergencies

  • Facilitative, collaborative or radical climate journalism alternatives?
  • Political economy of climate media in Asia-Pacific

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.
