Dictionary of Journalism

Publication at Faculty of Social Sciences |


"The Dictionary of Journalism" is the result of work by seventeen scholars from various departments of the Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University. It contains terminology from the areas of press, radio and television, enhanced by interesting examples from the scholars' practice, quotations as well as pictorial material, which lends the text a different quality.

The dictionary also includes detailed entries from the fields of cultural journalism and news writing, it covers the development of some of the terms and entries related to the digitalization and internetization of the media, as well as terms from the publishing sector, including problems in the sector of magazines and publishing. In addition to factual information, many entries include popularizing sections, which offer an insight into the history of the term or develops and complements what would otherwise be an austere encyclopaedic definition.
