Open Access & Open Educational Resources for Journalism

Journalism Titles

Below is a selective list of OA or OER books relating to journalism. So that you can read reviews and summaries, the links go to the book's entry in the collection I found it in: Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers goes to the book's entry in BC Commons, Data Journalism Handbook goes to that book's entry in Directory of Open Access Books, etc. There is overlap among collections and each collection yields between a dozen and a million hits for a simple search of "journalism". 

Journalism Searches

The links below are search strings for journalism topics in Mason OER Metafinder, MERLOT, and OASIS. Results include textbooks, book chapters, assignments, lesson plans, syllabi, journal articles, websites, government documents, images, posters, charts, and other material.
