The collection includes the following volumes: “Theory, history and development of journalism”, “Journalistic law and ethics”, “Media linguistics and editing”, “Media marketing and management”, “Genres and issues of mastery in the printed media”, “Audiovisual journalism”, “Online journalism and new media trends”, “PR services in the modern media sphere”, “Specialized journalism”, “Sociology and psychology of journalism”. Each volume is published in thousand copies.
According to Makhmudjon Parpiyev, a journalist, deputy chairman of the Senate Committee on Science, Education and Health, earlier there was no decent training manual for media workers in the country.
“This manual has filled the gap. It will become an important source of information not only for future journalists, but also for current ones,” Parpiyev said.
