Ian Richards

Added December 2014

Professor Ian Richards joined what was then the Journalism Education Association in the mid 1980s, after moving into academia from print journalism. Since that time he has served the JEA, later JEAA and now JERAA, in a number of capacities – as president in the early 1990s and since 2003 as editor of Australian Journalism Review. Over the years of his editorship, the quality of the journal has steadily increased and it has broadened its outlook from a focus primarily on Australia to a more global perspective.
