Arab Media & Society, the journal of the Kamal Adham Center for Television and Digital Journalism (in the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at AUC is seeking submissions for its next summer/ fall issue on “Science Journalism”. As humanity has moved into the digital age, traditional journalism has suffered and science beats have often been among the first to get the axe. In the Arab world, social and political upheaval and cultural context have, in many ways, compounded this issue. Beyond this, a tremendous regional deficit in academic programs and professional training have negatively impacted the quality and quantity of content reaching audiences in the region. The journal publishes in English and Arabic biannually, in summer and winter. It accepts submissions of quantitative or qualitative academic scholarship addressing any aspect of media or journalism and the Arab world. 

Suggested subtopics for papers (not mandatory):

  1. Defining and bench-marking science journalism in the Arab world.
  2. Science journalism education in the Arab world: issues and concerns.
  3.  The importance of language: translating scientific jargon for a wider audience.
  4. Ethics and bias in science journalism.
  5. Professional approaches to science journalism.
  6.  Science journalism training.
  7.  Medical journalism education and training.
  8.  The evolution of science journalism in the digital age.

  10.  Building trust: accuracy in scientific reporting.
  11.  Creative approaches to science journalism.
  12.  Medical and human health reporting.
