The journal Ecquid Novi is entering a new phase in its history. As from this year, editorship of the journal has passed to Herman Wasserman (Newcastle University/ Stellenbosch University). The founding and former editor, Arnold de Beer, will become the publisher. A new editorial board has been appointed (see below).
The (newly redesigned) journal’s revised title – Ecquid Novi: African Journalism Studies – reflects the journal’s main focus on journalism within the African context. Although there is a preference for manuscripts dealing with journalism on the continent, comparative studies of journalism in the Global South, or of comparative articles on journalism in other regions that have a bearing on Africa, will also be welcomed. All theoretical and methodological approaches are invited, although there is a preference for critical approaches and qualitative methodologies.
