Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements
Write a research report on the topic you chose for your research file (2,500 words).
As previously stated, the research assessment must examine the coverage in the Australian media/or via Reuters (Media Express) of an international news event, issue or personality. The subject must be topical (no older than one year) and it must be of a serious nature so that it will enable you to conduct and demonstrate your research capabilities.
Refer back to the Research File criteria that you used for assignment 1. Now you need to write up the full report, explaining what you set out to find and why (research file proposal), and then continuing with the data that you found, citing examples, the analysis that you carried out and the conclusions that you reached.
– Your work is analytical rather than purely descriptive, which reflects the fact that this is a postgraduate research study and not an undergraduate one.
– That you have given a clear understanding of what you have read, or seen and situated it in the context of the wider media landscape of international news
