oa Global Media Journal - African Edition - Foreword

Volume 6, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 2073-2740



This issue of the Global Media Journal, African Edition, marks two main steps forward. The first is the cooperation between the University of Cape Town and the University of Stellenbosch with a view to improving research culture in Africa and providing new research opportunities for African scholars. The second is taking the Global Media Journal, African Edition, to a more professional and academic level by providing blind peer review of the different contributions of scholars with the aim of securing quality and fairness. Research on journalism and media governance in Africa still suffers from a lack of adequate and comprehensive investigation as a result of the flagrant gap between the rhetoric of liberty and the double-standard policies which debilitate the will for profound social change.
