CCJ: Committee of Concerned Journalists


Publisher: Committee of Concerned Journalists

The Committee of Concerned Journalists is a consortium of journalists, publishers, owners and academics worried about the future of the profession.To secure journalism's future, the group believes that journalists from all media, geography, rank and generation must be clear about what sets our profession apart from other endeavors. To accomplish this, the group is creating a national conversation among journalists about principles. Update (via the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (University of Missouri) website where the CCJ is archived) After 14 years dedicated to helping an industry in crisis find solutions that are consistent with the enduring values of journalism, the Committee of Concerned Journalists (CCJ) ceased to exist as an operating organization on December 31, 2011. The work and the legacy of CCJ and its members will continue through a variety of means, including in cooperation with the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, CCJ’s partner for its last six years, through the books and ideas the group inspired, and with the Project for Excellence in Journalism, founded and operated by Tom Rosenstiel, the co-founder of CCJ.

Literature Resource Center along with Literature Criticism Online (LCO) have been integrated into Artemis Literary Sources, enabling researchers, faculty and students to search across the largest corpus of literary criticism, original works, biographies, reviews, work overviews and so much more in order to discover and analyze content in entirely new ways.  This cutting-edge platform features the tools that students, faculty, and researchers require – such as:

  • Detailed subject indexing -  which promotes content discovery across collections, drawing connections that simple search and retrieve cannot achieve
  • Term clusters - showcases topics that commonly occur in relation to the search term, which helps students and researchers uncover hidden connections
  • Term frequency - allows users to see the frequency of their search term(s) in the content over time, which can suggest the importance of particular concepts during given periods
