About Pacific Journalism Review

Pacific Journalism Review is a journal covering media issues and communication in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. While one objective is research into Pacific journalism theory and practice, the journal is also interested in advertising, communication, information technology, government, media studies, politics and public administration.

It also has a special interest in environmental and development studies in the media and communication -- and indigenous media in the region. But PJR also aims to be very readable and lively with illustrations, graphics ... and cartoons.

The journal has in the past been published by Asia-Pacific Network in association with the Journalism Programme of the University of the South Pacific and is linked to the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism's Online Journalist. From 2003, the journal will be published by the School of Communication Studies, Auckland University of Technology.

Nine volumes have been published since November 1994 with the latest edition (June 2002) featuring the theme NZ media foreign ownership.
