MA Journalism lecturers, student publish
book chapters, article for scholarly outlets

Two lecturers of the graduate and undergraduate journalism programs, and a student of the MA in Journalism program, got published in two compendiums and a leading journal during the final two months of 2022.

Former MA in Journalism Program Lead Felipe Salvosa II co-authored the book chapter titled News reporting of the Covid-19 pandemic: Perspectives from the Global South in a compendium published by Routledge last November 28.
The chapter by Salvosa and Sara Chinnasamy of the University of Technology in Mara, Malaysia form one of 50 chapters in The Routledge Companion to News and Journalism (second edition). Veteran journalism scholar Stuart Allan, of Cardiff University’s School of Journalism and Media Culture (JOMEC), edited the compendium.
Salvosa’s and Chinnasamy’s chapter is part of their work for the Global Risk Journalism Hub, a network of journalism researchers, educators and practitioners that studies the news reporting of “globalized crises issues”.
Meanwhile, current MA in Journalism Program Lead Jeremaiah Opiniano and 2019 BA in Journalism alumna Kristine Anne T. Macasiray published a chapter in the Palgrave Macmillan book Journalism Pedagogy in Transitional Countries released online last December 5.
Macasiray’s undergraduate thesis became the chapter titled The Voices of Students in the Learning of Journalism: Views from the Philippines. Opiniano served as Macasiray’s thesis supervisor.
Journalism Pedagogy in Transitional Countries featured chapters from China, Slovenia, Egypt, Turkey, Bangladesh and Mexico. Diana Garrisi and Xianwen Kuang of Xi’an-Jiaotong Liverpool University in China co-edited the book.
Finally, MA in Journalism student Jasper Emmanuel Arcalas and MA in Marketing Communication student Jhoana Paula Tuazon co-authored a journal article for the top-tier journal Journalism Practice of Taylor and Francis.
Arcalas, Tuazon and Opiniano co-authored How Journalists Cope with News Work’s Stresses While Remaining Creative Amid the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Phenomenological Study that was first published online by Journalism Practice last December 7.
The said study was a finals requirement for the MA in Journalism class in Communication Theory and Theories of the Press (under Opiniano) during the second term of Academic Year 2020-2021.
Students and academic staff of the undergraduate and graduate journalism programs had been published in international journals and in books since 2017—all of which are indexed in the world’s leading scholarly research indexing services (Scopus by Elsevier, and the Web of Science by Clarivate).
These indexed scholarly outlets include the journals Journalism: Theory, Practice and Criticism (SAGE), Journal of Applied Journalism and Media Studies (Intellect), SEARCH Journal of Media and Communication (Taylor’s University – Malaysia), Jurnal Komunikasi (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), and Pacific Journalism Review (Pacific Media Centre).
The MA in Journalism program began during the second term of Academic Year 2015-2016 to further train journalism and communication practitioners and make them future newsroom managers that help produce quality journalism.
