Pacific Journalism Monographs, a research companion to Pacific Journalism Review, has been launched on AUT's Tuwhera digital open access journals platform.

Dr Hermin Indah Wahyuni, director of the Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS) at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, did the launching honours today.

Library staff, communication scholars from New Zealand and Indonesia shared in the launch.

Tuwhera's Luqman Hayes, PJM editor Professor David Robie of the Pacific Media Centre and Dr Wahyuni, an editor of IKAT, spoke at the journal publishing strategies at the launch.

The Monographs publish longer research projects in an online and booklet format.

The publication offers journalists, journalism academics and researchers an outlet for quality research and analysis in a long-form article of up to 15,000 words.

The Monographs are a sister publication to PJR but provide a broader platform than is generally available in the journal.

Topics cover a diverse range of journalism research from media freedom and human rights in the Asia-Pacific to Asia-Pacific research methodologies, climate change, vernacular Pasifika media research in New Zealand, and post-coup self-censorship in Fiji.
