“The National Library of Australia has declared this site of national significance” – eJournalist.
A media journal I would recommend to those who both study and take an interest in the media would be ‘ejournalist’, this is a media and communications site where writers publish their academic work.
It’s an online collection of media journals from University qualified writers. The writers include a short description of their chosen topic – eliminating the excruciating pain of the skim read to find out it was completely pointless- and a link to the full journal article.
This website also includes course specific content for students taking this module as stated in the introduction: “journalism, public relations, media production and digital media”.
The topics range from: the impact of the internet; media ownership; politics and the press; participatory journalism; and much more. Some of the content is directly related to Australia, so be sure to check that it’s country-relevant!
The collection of journals start all the way from 2001 – this was when that really bizarre yet wonderful programmed ‘The Hoobs’ first aired to give you some perspective-. One to two issues are released yearly, providing an online media journey.
You’re also able to get in contact with the writers – simply by clicking their name-. This will be useful to ask questions on their articles or possibly obtain quotes and advice for assignments.
There’s also a search bar on the homepage to help you locate even more journal articles, an incredible one-tab-wonder.
