Journalism Ethics for the
Global Citizen


It's gone by extremely quickly, but this four-year research project investigating issues related to the public communication of science has come to a formal end. Stay tuned for the results of our interviews with science journalists across Canada, an accuracy study, as well as an international content analysis to be published in the near future.

For information about the Master of Journalism program at UBC, please visit the UBC Graduate School of Journalism.

For information specifically about science and health journalism, please get in touch with Candis Callison.

Thank you to Genome BC for the funding and the Pleiades Promoter Project for support and fruitful collaborations. Thank you also to all of the faculty and staff at the Graduate School of Journalism, especially Dr. Mary Lynn Young, for their support of the project -- not to mention their patience for some of our more logistically challenging endeavours. Thanks also to the many students who were a part of our research as well as faculty, staff and students from other campus units who were involved in our events or other activities.



Dr. Stephen Ward is now the James E. Burgess Professor of Journalism Ethics and Director, Center for Journalism Ethics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication
