More Info -- Encyclopedia of Journalism
Database Description This encyclopedia surveys the state of journalism at the end of the twenty-first century's first decade. The first four volumes contain some 360 entries ranging in length from 1,000 to 4,000 words, arranged by topic heading from A to Z. Each includes both cross-references and sources for further information and is signed by its author. The focus of the entries is on the gathering, editing, reporting, and distribution of news. The emphasis is on American media and practice, with some reference to other nations. The encyclopedia presents a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of journalism— including trends, issues, concepts, individuals, institutions, media outlets, and events.

The fifth volume provides a selected and annotated collection of documents of importance to journalism past and present. Edited by Glenn Lewis of York College and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, these materials are designed for independent use on their own, as well as supporting materials found in the first four volumes.

The sixth and final volume includes a listing of journalism awards and prizes, a section devoted to journalism freedom in the last 30 years, and an extensive subject-divided and annotated bibliography on all aspects of journalism.
