Welcome to the new IJNet

Welcome to the new IJNet

IJNet | December 10, 2010

We at IJNet are excited to present our newly redesigned website today. As before, you'll find on IJNet a wealth of multilingual resources (in Arabic, English, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and now, Chinese) to help you find opportunities and improve your media skills. Our new site also brings you:

  • Topics Center, where you can find information on everything from basic reporting to health journalism
  • Instructional videos on our Arabic, English and Spanish sites
  • Community content, where you can easily upload your own valuable resources to share with the world
  • Specialized blogs written by IJNet editors
  • Discussion groups on hot topics, where you can sound off on issues that matter to you
  • The ability to instantly share your favorite IJNet article or training opportunity on Facebook or Twitter.

What’s more, IJNet now offers expert content from new partners that are leaders in the journalism and new media communities:

  • Media Helping Media (MHM) is a training information site that provides free media resources for journalists working in transition states, post-conflict countries and areas where freedom of expression is under threat.
  • Poynter Online is the website of the Poynter Institute, a school serving journalism and democracy for more than 35 years. Poynter offers news and training that fits any schedule, with individual coaching, in-person seminars, online courses, webinars and more.
  • PBS MediaShift’s Idea Lab is a group weblog by innovators who are reinventing community news for the Digital Age. Each author won a grant in the Knight News Challenge to help fund a startup idea or to blog on a community media-related topic.

IJNet will also continue to build upon its relationships with two existing partners: the Global Forum for Media Development, a global network of 500 non-governmental media assistance organizations, and Webbmedia Group, an international digital strategy consultancy whose president Amy Webb, contributes her popular column on the latest digital tools.

We're excited about our new site. We hope you'll love it--and that you'll tell your friends to visit IJNet!



The new design looks sleek and eye-soothing. Blogs are welcome.


I want to congratulate IJNET on it's new look and all the stuff working behind the scenes :)
On behalf all journalists around the world, THANK YOU

Thank you!

Many thanks for your kind words about our website. We are thrilled that you like the redesigned IJNet.

Best wishes,

Very nice

The newly designed site is really nice looking. I liked it.

People who planned it must be thanked for this great site.

New Website

I like your new website. It seems to me that it allows for more news than the former one and the design makes access to stories easier. The diversity in its news coverage and presentation make it more appealing and attractive. More grease to your elbows. One thing though: I have been a regular contributor to discussion topics in the past but for quite some time now, I have been finding it difficult posting my contributions to the website as I am most times told my contributions are spam. I hope this ends to allow me continue to contribute enlightened opinions on most discussion topics.
