This past week, JSchool students visiting New York met with business journalists at Bloomberg, the New York Times, Fox Business News, CNBC, and the Dow Jones Newswire/Wall Street Journal. And just for kicks they spent Friday afternoon on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Two SUSI scholars will present research papers at AEJMC National Convention

For the first time, Dr. Yusuf Kalyango, the director of the Institute for International Journalism , encouraged all of the scholars to submit original research papers to the conference. Drs. Anne Cooper-Chen, Guido Stempel and Yusuf Kalyango as well as doctoral student Ed Simpson edited eight research papers in March.

These staff members had three weeks to edit each paper and provide the proper feedback to the author in order for the author to make the appropriate corrections before the April 1 deadline. After reading and editing those papers, they advised two scholars not to submit to the conference. Therefore, three of the six papers submitted were accepted for presentation.

Every other Thursday evening at 9 p.m. local time, SPJ INC-ers and anyone else can chime in on Twitter (#INCspills) for conversation about current topics in journalism.

Last Thursday they “spilled” on such topics as how the breaking news of Osama bin Laden’s death was covered. According to INC’s Sarah Grothjan, they also focused “on the multiple news outlets that broke news of the death before Obama confirmed it in his speech.”
