Journalism, not news[edit source]

This wiki is focused on journalism, not news per se. For example, news coverage of U.S. President Bush is an appropriate topic, but an article solely about Bush is not.

If you want to publish news on a Wiki, please use Wikinews.

If the content is specifically useful to citizen journalists and appropriate on Wikinews, please put it there and add an interwiki link from Journawiki.

Transparency[edit source]

In the interest of transparency, members are encouraged to disclose their real name on their user pages. Indicating any relevant affiliations can also be useful.
