Journalism can establish its credentials—all it takes is a little research

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The critical difference between the academic and journalism research comes at

    the beginning. While the academic project is subject to scrutiny and approval by

    university-based ethics committees, the journalistic project is not subject to the

    same requirements. However, this should not serve to devalue the journalism

    relative to the academic alternative. For Journalism to establish its research

    credentials in academe it needs to do a better job at selling itself: at explaining

    not just what it does, but how it does it.
