American Journalism Review, which is published by the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, is going online only.
“The model for publishing has clearly shifted to digital formats as online readership has grown,” says Merrill College Dean Lucy A. Dalglish. “It no longer made financial sense for the award-winning AJR to continue producing a print magazine because most AJR readers accessed content on the Web. In addition, philanthropy has long been an important source of funding for print magazines devoted to media criticism. That support has steadily declined over the past 10 years.”
