Data Journalism or more appropriately investigative journalism is nothing but a trendier term which ultimately, describing journalism for the modern world. Voluntary or non-voluntary, everyone produce data by use of mobile phones, searching  internet, using social media or even walking down the street. Everyday loads of data are being produced through work, products or spending. Yet with the ever-growing digitization of information, journalists are swamped with more data than we can possibly make sense of. Hence the need for new journalism techniques – came in to picture with embracing technology. That is what data journalism is. Journalism that uses technology to access, analyses and finds stories in data and then tell the stories of the people the data represents.
The hurried widespread impact of the internet and social media has left many in the marketing world brooding the answer to the print vs digital/Broadcast debate. Many of us do not hesitate to ask, Is print dead already?  For the purpose of marketing and advertising, digital/ broadcast media possess several benefits. It can be inexpensive than print media, depending on the details of each campaign. Digital campaigns can also usually be launched, produced and updated faster than print. Even though some businesses have focused their advertising efforts solely online in an effort to exploit on the extensive reach, cheap cost and convenience of the World Wide Web, it appears that there are exclusive benefits to print media that companies should not overlook.
It is almost two decades now, the World Wide Web has immensely reformed the world and revolutionized how information is stored, published, searched and consumed. The undulation effect has spread so wide that it influences not just each and every business and industries but jumped over into politics, medicine, media and breaches in to geographical locations, crosses cultural boundaries and ultimately, touches people’s day to day lives. But the big question is what makes social media; a sturdy tool for journalism is a big question. So we are here with Journalism2019 to discuss all these aspects.
Usually the concept of Blockchain is associated with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and ethereum. But now more and more projects are aiming on blockchain applications. The more recent are journalisms and storytelling. Journalism is an industry undergoing blockade. In fact, there are two simultaneous existential catastrophes facing journalism. One is declining public confidence and support for media in the face of the rise in fake news and failing advertising models that supported journalism in the past. Blockchain could be the ultimate solution to both crises facing journalism. This technology, which distributes data across a network of participating nodes using cryptographic proof and removes the necessity for information to be controlled by a central authority. 
It is neither travel writing nor travel blogging, rather Travel journalism is more about writing form all its own. Even though travel journalism is often labeled as a slighter form of journalism, it is indeed an important medium of information, especially as our world shrinks with globalization. As per as Food journalism is concern, it’s all about a "best" list, a "what's hot and what's not" or a restaurant ranking system. It's about what we need more of, less of and what we better start doing right away. They tell us a chef's favorite holiday treat, favorite knife, favorite gadget, favorite song, favorite thing to do after work, favorite late-night snack, favorite morning ritual. Instead of stories, we get inventories.
As a social process, Communication produces changes in the behavior knowledge, and attitude of an individuals and groups through providing technical and genuine information. Mass media are diversified and large scale communication devices for Information transmission to the large audience which includes newspaper, books, radio, magazines, television and internet etc. As per as the link between media and communication is concern, globalization has redefined international communication in many ways. First, it has opened previously closed markets to multinational media corporations across the world. Second, the diffusion of high speed internet and bandwidth has altered the nature of international news content availability. Finally, the combination of globalized media conglomerates and the internet/digital revolution has changed the operations of global journalism and mass communication across the world
Journalism Practice is an intellectually rigorous journal with all contributions being refereed anonymously by acknowledged international experts in the field.

Media Relations is an aspect of public relations. The terms are not interchangeable as media relations focuses solely on the relationship between the company and the media. They use different media outlets and coverage to tell the company's story, rather than directly engaging with the publics and key stakeholders
Media ethics is the subdivision of applied ethics dealing with the specific ethical principles and standards of media, including broadcast media, film, theatre, the arts, print media and the internet. The field covers many varied and highly controversial topics, ranging from war journalism to Benetton ad campaigns. Media ethics involves promoting and defending values such as a universal respect for life and the rule of law and legality. Literature regarding the ways in which specifically the Internet impacts media ethics in journalism online is scarce, thereby complicating the idea for a universal code of media ethics. Media regulation is the control or guidance of mass media by governments and other bodies. This regulation, via law, rules or procedures, can have various goals, for example intervention to protect a stated "public interest", or encouraging competition and an effective media market, or establishing common technical standards. The principal targets of media regulation are the press, radio and television, but may also include film, recorded music, cable, satellite, storage and distribution technology (discs, tapes etc.), the internet, mobile phones etc 
Media Industry is moving away from traditional print and audio-visual domination and into the digital age. With smartphones being the key to ushering in innovative technology, creativity and high-speed communication. Mobile telephony has proved a huge plus in propagating digital applications not just in the metros but also in smaller cities and towns. There has been a phenomenal growth of digital media usage despite the poor power and infrastructure situation in India which is a huge deterrent. India today boasts of the third largest population on Facebook and the growing numbers are an indicator of things to come. 
Media economics embodies economic theoretical and practical economic questions specific to media of all types. Of particular concern to media economics are the economic policies and practices of media companies and disciplines including journalism and the news industry, film production, entertainment programs, print, broadcast, mobile communications, Internet, advertising and public relations. Deregulation of media, media ownership and concentration, market share, intellectual property rights, competitive economic strategies, company economics, "media tax" and other issues are considered parts of the field. Media economics has social, cultural, and economic implications. Regular study of media economic issues began in the 1970s but flourished in the 1980s with the addition of classes on the subject at U.S. and European universities.
