The future of assessing journalism research in Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The Australian journalism studies and practice research community in Australia is at a crucial and challenging juncture. This paper will summarise and analyse the outcomes of the rst three rounds of Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) to lay the foundation for a strategic discus- sion of where to next for journalism research in Australia. The paper will argue that the journal- ism research collective in Australia is now faced with a clear choice – to be reactive or pro-active in how it would like journalism research to be assessed beyond 2018.
