Product Description


As the news business transforms, Online Journalism is a fantastic new resource for both students and lecturers. Informative, straightforward and easily digested, it’s a one-stop shop for the skills, knowledge, principles and mindset required for journalistic success in the digital age.

(Mary Braid 2013-10-29)

An essential guide for anyone hungry to learn how journalism should be practised today, and will be tomorrow. Hill and Lashmar encapsulate the transformative impact technology is having on journalism, but anchor those changes in the basic principles of reporting.

(Paul Lewis 2013-10-18)

This book serves as a sharp and succinct guide to learning the skills for real-world journalism in the online era. Packed with the unusual mix of recent and relevant case studies, practical advice and the intellectual underpinnings of the practice, this serves as a very effective handbook indeed for those learning the trade. (James Ball 2013-11-03)

The steady decline in circulation of the print media continues to be a source of deep concern: there is much talk of the slow death of our trade. But Paul Lashmar shows how serious, cutting-edge reporting can not only survive but take a leap forward with the use of new technology.

Lashmar uses his vast experience as a renowned investigative journalist, armed with the best of the traditional skills of story getting and writing, to analyse and explain how to embrace and exploit the evolving opportunities. This book is invaluable not only to students entering the field but those already there who may feel daunted by what the future holds for our working lives.
