Call for Papers
Since the emergence of breakthrough AI technologies like ChatGPT in November 2022, journalists have been at the forefront of utilising these innovations in their work. Deep learning technology, coupled with the exponential growth in computing power, has unlocked unprecedented possibilities in journalism. From analysing vast amounts of online and social media data to combating fake news and even monitoring environmental changes through satellite imagery, AI has undeniably reshaped the industry.

Simultaneously, AI’s influence extends to the realm of journalism education, presenting both opportunities and challenges. Educators and students must navigate its ethical boundaries and implications, while also harnessing its potential to enhance learning experiences.

We invite researchers to contribute original insights and perspectives on AI’s role in journalism education. Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

  • Integrating AI into journalism curriculum: Innovative approaches and case studies.
  • Impact of AI on journalism skills and employment
  • Preparing students for AI’s role in changing news consumption
  • Challenges of implementing AI in journalism education: Overcoming technical and institutional barriers.
  • AI’s role in promoting or hindering diversity and inclusion
  • How to create AI literacy and ethical awareness among future journalists
  • Teaching about AI as a topic for journalistic investigations
  • Generative AI in journalism education: Methodologically, pedagogically, ethically


  • Opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research in AI and journalism education.
  • Reach a diverse audience of Nordic journalism educators and international scholars.
  • Contribute to shaping the future of journalism education in the digital era.
