New article: Meta-analysis of Australian Journalism Review articles

An analysis of 11 years of articles published in the Australian Journalism Review, conducted by Peter English, Jane Fynes-Clinton and myself, has been published in the same journal’s latest issue (vol. 33, iss. 2). In the study, we examined a wide range of issues, such as authorship, topics, methods, internationalisation and funding. This from the abstract:

Our findings show that, contrary to evidence elsewhere, a gender balance exists in terms of absolute numbers of authors, although a “glass-ceiling effect” is still discernible. Queensland universities dominate the publications, and most studies employ qualitative rather than quantitative methods. Journalism education is the most popular topic, yet a large variety of topics are evident overall. Despite a heavy focus on Australia, and to a smaller extent New Zealand, the journal also displays a sizeable international touch.
