I figured I would share some of the findings from my chosen academic journal, as this is what I have been working on lately. My Journal is titled Journalism and Mass Communication Educator. The issue I chose to draw from contains nine articles; four in-depth studies and five book reviews. The research study articles all seem to follow the general theme of journalism in the modern age. The first discusses online journalism and seeks out to discover possible discrepancies between teaching online journalism and actually practicing it in the field. The second article compares successful online journals in order to try and discover why they are so successful. The third article strays from that theme, as it is a study on burnout and job satisfaction among newspaper editors. Finally, the fourth article examines the necessity for professionalizm to remain in online journalism. Completing the analysis of published discourse has been my main focus lately, so I figured I would share a bit of that in this blog post.
