Abstract: In this paper I will reflect on research published in Convergence: The Journal of Research into New Media Technologies on news journalism since its launch in 1995. Focusing on the three broad definitions of media convergence which are central to our aims and the agenda of the journal, I will review how convergence in journalism has been treated by researchers and in particular by the two special issues in 1998 guest edited by Jane Singer and in 2004 by Jim Hall.
Convergence: the International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies is published by SAGE Publications. It was co-founded and is still co-edited by Julia Knight (University of Sunderland) and Alexis Weedon (University of Bedfordshire). SAGE journals are currently free online until the end of October.
