The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ) is a UK-based research centre and think tank founded in 2006, which operates Thomson Reuters Journalism Fellowship Programme, also known as the Reuters Fellowship.
The institute was founded in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford in 2006 to conduct scholarly and professional research on news media, operate the Thomson Reuters Journalism Fellowship Programme, and host academic research fellows. The RISJ works to bridge daily working journalism and academic study. The Institute regularly holds seminars and events and has an extensive publication programme.
The Thomson Reuters Journalism Fellowship Programme, or Reuters Fellowship, founded in 1983, is jointly based at the University of Oxford's Department of Politics and International Relations and Green Templeton College. It has hosted over 600 fellows from 90 countries. The fellowship is open to selected mid-career journalists from all over the world, who are funded to produce an academic paper on topics of their choice at Oxford.
RISJ also hosts a limited number academic fellows working on funded research projects on issues of significance to the news industry. Its central interests include journalism practices, standards, accountability, media policy, and the business of news.
Funding and governance
The institute's steering committee is chaired by Alan Rusbridger, former editor-in-chief of The Guardian, and former principal of Lady Margaret Hall. Advisory board members include Marty Baron, executive editor, The Washington Post; Ritu Kapur, co-founder and CEO, The Quint, India; and Baroness Wheatcroft of Blackheath.[when?]
