The Japan Society for Studies in Journalism and Mass Communication respectfully presents the first issue of AJJMS, Asian Journal of Journalism and Media Studies.
Our aim of this journal is to facilitate communication among Asian academic societies for journalism and mass communication studies. Today, Asian countries are faced with political and economic problems, as well as delicate situations arising from poor mutual understanding among various levels of governments, general publics and media. Nevertheless, academic exchanges among Asian societies remain active. We will develop this communication, making it more secure and productive with this journal.
The first issue of AJJMS 2017 consists of three articles, but we hope to raise this humble journal up to be greater and more influential, step by step. We hope to gain support from Asian scholars—and others as well.
