We have survived this far. Judging from the range of research papers and commentaries submitted for refereeing, the New Year looks promising. APME No.3 provides a mix of articles encompassing both quantitative and qualitative research approaches to theoretical issues -- ranging from an intuitive examination of the media construction of controversial Australian politician, Pauline Hanson; to the quantification of perception of e-mail usage among university students; empirical location of "Chinatown" in the global village; and an amusing piece on classroom instruction by a casual journalism educator. The research articles are supplemented by the more pragmatic-oriented contributions on how to educate journalism students through a process of self-discovery as opposed to conventional tutelage.
