Call for Research Papers in Science Journalism Issues from Arab Media  Society

Arab Media & Society, the biannual journal of the Kamal Adham Center for Television and Digital Journalism in the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo, is seeking submissions for its next issue on “Science Journalism”. As we have 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. With this in mind, Arab Media & Society is compiling a special issue dedicated entirely to science journalism in the Arab region. 

Paper Topics:

Papers may address (but are not limited to) the suggested subtopics below:

  • Defining and bench-marking science journalism in the Arab world.
  • Science journalism education in the Arab world: issues and concerns.
  • The importance of language: translating scientific jargon for a wider audience.
  • Ethics and bias in science journalism.
  • Professional approaches to science journalism.
  • Science journalism training.
  • Medical journalism education and training.
  • The evolution of science journalism in the digital age.
  • Journalism and the scientific community: bridging the gap.
  • Building trust: accuracy in scientific reporting.
  • Creative approaches to science journalism.
  • Medical and human health reporting.
  • Agricultural journalism models and challenges.
  • Environmental journalism: development and impact.
  • Role of professional associations in promoting science journalism.
  • Women and science journalism.
  • The politics of science journalism.
  • Rules, regulations, and policies in science journalism.
  • Creating a culture for science journalism: obstacles and opportunities.
  • The future of science journalism: critical challenges and growth opportunities.

Submission Requirements:

While the Arab Media & Society welcomes submissions from diverse disciplines and perspectives, articles should relate in some way to the Arab world and its diaspora, and media or communication technology. Submissions may be up to 10,000 words, including footnotes, and should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style. All submissions should be sent using the online form, or be sent as .doc or Docx files, including the author’s name as it will be published, affiliation, and a brief abstract of no more than 150 words.
