J-Source is a joint venture led since 2013 by the journalism programs at Carleton and Ryerson universities. Launched in 2007 initially under the wing of the Canadian Journalism Foundation, it has developed a dedicated following of journalists, journalism students, academics and communication professionals. Publishing content on the j-source.ca site in both English and French (Projet J), J-Source is the go-to-source for news about the people, institutions, research and best practices of journalism and journalism education in Canada and an outlet for the work of journalism schools and students across the country.
Gifts to J-Source will fund content creation as well as development of the web site itself, providing a platform to share important intelligence with the broader journalism community and critical experiential learning opportunities in the School of Journalism. With Carleton at the forefront of managing this resource for its extensive network of stakeholders, J-Source enhances Carleton’s reputation as a centre of excellence for academic journalism and providing an invaluable of-the-moment teaching resource for the School.
