The Future of Journalism Research in Australia

Journalism research and ERA: Observations from New Zealand 's experience with the PBRF

Dr Grant Hannis

Australian journalism academics are preparing themselves for the first round of the Excellence in Research for Australia regime. The majority of journalism programs in New Zealand have already taken part in two rounds of the similar Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) system and are preparing for the next, to be held in 2012. This paper discusses the New Zealand system, making observations for the assistance of Australian journalism academics, including the impact of the PBRF on funding and research, journalism's performance in the PBRF, the status of practice-based research, and various strategies researchers can use to maximise their performance.
