Inculcating public journalism philosophies into newsroom culture

Romano, Angela R. (2001) Inculcating public journalism philosophies into newsroom culture. Australian Journalism Review, 23(2), pp. 43-62.


This paper poses the question of whether experiments in public journalism succeed in engaging reporters in "public conversation", so that the reporters are educated about community concerns and they draw from pools of knowledge within society when writing stories. This question is explored in a case study of the 1998 and 1999 activities of Queensland's Public Journalism (PJ) Project.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
