Call for Book Chapters!
Leon Barkho (Jönköping University, Sweden) and Jairo Lugo-Ocando
(Northwestern University, Qatar) welcome chapter submission to their
forthcoming companion on journalism studies titled: “The Handbook of
Applied Journalism and Media Studies - Investigating Journalism Practice
Across Regions and Cultures”.
Following the submission of a detailed proposal, they have obtained the
greenlight from Intellect Books, to compile the handbook, a monumental
work of about 50 chapters. At this stage, we are seeking an abstract of
about 250 to 300 words to be submitted to us by the end of May.
The handbook focuses on the question of how we can render our collective
knowledge of journalism as a discipline and the mass of scholarly
literature on the subject useful, practical, and relevant to those
practicing journalism across regions and cultures. The edited handbook
also welcomes contributions on any of the following key topics with
emphasis preferably placed on own country, region, or culture:
**Interlink between journalism as scholarship and Journalism as practice:
1. Research which has practitioners (news outlets, newspapers,
reporters, editors, media stakeholders, etc.) not merely as respondents
or subjects, but as peers, counterparts, and co-authors.
2. Research focusing on journalism’s two planks at the same time: (1)
content, and (2) practice.
3. Interlink between journalism studies as scholarship and journalism
studies as practice that does not undermine the need of reporters to
learn from the immense literature investigating their profession, and in
turn will not deny receivers of journalistic content the opportunity to
benefit from scholarly research.
**Journalism studies contribution to journalistic profession:
1. For the handbook, the concept of journalism research is understood as
practice. This type of research, which takes practice as its thrust, is
potentially meant to contribute to journalistic profession, and can be
used by practitioners (reporters, media owners, editors, etc.).
2. What journalism studies can offer to help subjects of investigation
(newsrooms, editors, reporters, etc.) to translate academic knowledge
into practice to improve conditions in their field.
**Journalism practice across regions and cultures:
The utility of journalism, whether tackling conflict, economy,
environment, peace, etc., and its relevance to journalism practitioners
across regions and cultures.
**Toolkits to bridge the theory-practice divide
**Presentation of useful, relevant, and practical toolkits from the mass
of journalism scholarship on how to bridge theory-practice divide.
**Theories and methods:
1. Novel research with novel methodologies and theories geared to
benefit the practitioner world of journalism.
2. Work that investigates, operationalizes, and defines the gaping
divide of theory and practice in journalism studies.
3. Research that shifts focus to the top of the journalistic process to
arrive at a set of ideas involved in how reporters, editors and
newsrooms practice their profession.
4. Research which is international in scope and examines the theory and
practice of journalism across regions and cultures.
5. Research that looks at the entire news cycle and aims to provide a
bridge between the theoretical and academic study of journalism and the
actual practice of contemporary journalism.
6. Empirical examples, evidence and data of how journalists tend to
adapt to crises, and our changing world.
The practitioner world:
1. Research demonstrating to the practitioner world, which is expanding
and gaining greater influence due to the overwhelming power of digital
media, that academics are useful to journalism as a profession.
2. Research papers involving theories or concepts of how journalists
view the emerging social realities of our world, empirical studies of 3.
How journalists view their work or go about it and how our evolving
social realities contribute to the production of new journalistic
4. Presentation of practical solutions and alternatives with models on
how to build concrete stories, models for coverage to help journalists
to improve quality with examples that can be used by journalists and be
useful for journalism education, training of journalists and students of
5. Everyday journalistic routines, practices, problems, conditions, etc.
that guide journalists across regions and cultures.
6. Contributions by practitioners on their views and perceptions of
journalism studies and its relevance.
**Within this broader framework, questions that could be asked
pertaining to the thrust of the interrelated dimensions of the handbook:
1. How can the collective knowledge we have about media content and its
reception contribute to improvements in the field of journalism and its
2. How to change the existing mind logic or mindset towards journalism
3. How to develop theoretical, applied, and empirical research that
engages practitioners about the future of their own profession?
4. How far globalization in its various aspects, economic, social, or
cultural, have impacted journalism as practice.
5. What differences are there in coverage of global and local issues in
the practice of journalism?
