Media Helping Media has formed a trial partnership with the team behind The News Manual in order to pool resources so that free training modules can reach a wider audience.

The News Manual was first published as a three-volume book with assistance from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and was aimed initially at journalists working in developing countries.

It was designed to be a straightforward, no-nonsense guide and for many years it became a standard text in newsrooms across the Asia-Pacific region.

Now this site has been given premission to reproduce the first seven chapters of the manual.

The News Manual has three sections covering the basics of journalism , advanced journalistic techniques , and the law and ethics .

For the trial, this site is only reproducing the introduction and the first seven chapters of the basics of journalism.

    * Journalism - basic techniques
    * Chapter 1: What is news?
    * Chapter 2: What is a journalist?
    * Chapter 3: The shape of the news story
    * Chapter 4: Writing the intro in simple steps
    * Chapter 5: Writing the intro, the golden rules
    * Chapter 6: Writing the news story in simple steps 
    * Chapter 7: Writing the news story - clear writing

This site also has many training modules covering

    * Editorial ethics
    * Journalism training
    * Investigative journalism
    * Media management

Media Helping Media has also recently relaunched its discussion forum .  Please feel free to log on and use it do discuss any issues to do with media freedom, media development, or the training modules on the site. You can also add comments to any of the training modules by logging in and filling in the comment box at the end of each item.
