In this issue…

Last year, Pacific Journalism Review was launched for the first time at the University of Papua New Guinea. It was a modest effort to get the first regional magazine dealing with Pacific media, mass communication and journalism issues  based at a Pacific tertiary institution up and running. But the high level of interest in Pacific Journalism Review is heartening.
