A journal's as good as the articles it receives. Now in its fifth issue, APME has received articles ranging from critical commentaries and research papers to the occasional light features from those who see themselves more as journalists who write to tell a story, than academics who write to abstract a theory. We said in Issue No.1 (July-December 1997) that we would provide a congenial meeting place for scholars to meet practitioners in a rewarding and attractive intellectual environment. We have fallen short of that provision for lack of insightful contributions from the journalist. Articles refereed thus far have ranged from descriptive textual analyses of media representations to contentious discourse on the pragmatics and theories of journalism education.
