Vol 21, No 1 (2015): 20 Years Special Edition: Political journalism in the Asia-Pacific

PACIFIC JOURNALISM REVIEW is far more than a research journal. As an independent publication, it has given strong support to investigative journalism, socio-political journalism, political economy of the media, photojournalism and political cartooning in its two decades of publishing, which have all been strongly reflected in the character of the journal.

An edition celebrating 20 years of publishing of PJR. This is a special book edition ISBN978-1-927184-29-5

Vol 20, No 1 (2014): Investigative journalism trends

Editors: David Robie, Tom Morton and Wendy Bacon

Excerpt from the editorial by Frontline editor Professor Wendy Bacon:

Journalism with integrity
THIS IS the third issue Pacific Journalism Review has published on the theme of investigative journalism in recent years. Our first issue (PJR, 2011) followed the first regional Investigative Journalism conference held at the Pacific Media Centre at Auckland University of Technology in December 2010. In that issue, we argued that universities and academic journalists have an important role to play in building a culture of investigative reporting in the region. This issue follows up on that suggestion by focusing particularly on investigative journalism produced in an academic context.

This edition was a co-publication with the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ).

PJR19(2)C Cover

Vol 19, No 2 (2013): Celebrity and scandal

Editors: Barry King, Rosser Johnson; Allison Oosterman (unthemed)

THIS ISSUE of Pacific Journalism Review engages with the theme of the dynamics of fame in a small country. In contrast to the dominant focus in the newly emergent field of Celebrity Studies on celebrity as a global phenomenon, the emphasis in this issue is on the interface between the global and the local; on questions of how the distinctiveness of national and local values fares when caught up in or of willingly imitating the circulation of global fame

Vol 18, No 2 (2012): Rebuilding public trust in journalism

Editors: Johan Lidberg, Chris Nash and David Robie

Since the call for papers to the theme for this issue of the Pacific Journalism Review, more tumultuous events in journalism have unfolded dominated by the agonising restructure of the newspaper arms of media companies across the region. Hundreds of editorial jobs are on the line. The increasingly desperate search for the ‘new business model’ has been stepped up. But is the new model the only answer to the current plight of journalism? Are media proprietors paying enough attention to the fact that the business model is built on the public trusting the journalistic practices that sit at the heart of the media brands? Perhaps all stakeholders should pay closer attention to Conboy’s thoughts?
