Abstract

While organisers of major events like the Olympics, the Goodwill Games and CHOGM, actively seek out support from journalism faculties to provide students to do mainly menial tasks at media centres for these major events, when it comes to accrediting student journalists to report on these news events, it’s another matter. The author looks at the difficulties journalism students at QUT had in reporting the Goodwill Games and CHOGM for their broadcast outlets in Brisbane.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare 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.
