Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly
How will we do our jobs as journalists and as teachers and scholars? [...] most important, how informed will be the citizens who are required for participatory democracy? JMCQ sponsored a panel at the annual AEJMC convention in Boston this summer that asked, "Does J/MC Research Matter?" The question is not entirely tongue-in-cheek. [...] what of books, the "media's" ancient forebears, whose authors have the outdated luxury of taking the time and space to report and reflect thoughtfully on our field and on its serious research?
