About Us

About Us

For more than six decades, Nieman Reports has explored what it means to be a journalist, examined major shifts in the industry, and shared with its worldwide audience articles about the rights and responsibilities of news organizations.

Recent issues of the quarterly magazine have featured these topics: “The Signal and the Noise,”  “The Special 75th Anniversary Issue,” “The State of Journalism in China,” and “Rewriting J-School.”

To promote the academic use of articles, we work with a network of faculty members at journalism schools who alert colleagues and students about the content of each issue. On our Web site, we also have created Professor’s Corner to provide useful educational resources.

With its unique content — harnessing the voices of reporters and editors, photojournalists, cartoonists and producers whose experiences and insights speak to the challenges of rapid change and the enduring principles of journalism — Nieman Reports continues to play an essential role in shaping journalism’s future.
