Follow PJR on Facebook

Pacific Journalism Review is calling for unthemed papers for a special edition to be published in mid-2021.

The journal is seeking papers that fall within our broad remit of covering journalism, media and communication issues in the Pacific, including West Papua and Timor-Leste.

We also welcome submissions from colleagues in the near Asian region, including the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Submissions of any practice-based research in journalism and exegeses are especially for our Frontline section edited by Wendy Bacon (investigative journalism and reflective journalism-as-research – 6000-7000 words). The other four main sections in the double blind peer-reviewed journal are: 

Research articles (6000 words); 

Commentaries (industry insights, developments and practice (1500-3000 words), 

Frontline (investigative journalism and reflective journalism-as-research – 6000-7000 words); 

Forum (up to 800 words); and 

Reviews (reviewing books, documentaries and online developments – 800-1500 words, commissioned by the reviews editor).

The next edition will be produced by Philip Cass and David Robie.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to May 30.

The following edition will be based around papers presented at the Asian Congress for Media and Communication (ACMC) conference - Change, Adaptation and Innovation in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand, in November.

The APA-based style guide is here.

Submissions must be uploaded to the OJS open access website for Pacific Journalism Review on the Tuwhera indigenous research portal.

Pacific Journalism Review is now on Facebook for publishing information and updates about the journal.
