SEJournal: Prior to May 8, 2009  |  After May 8, 2009

Cover of SEJournal Spring 2009
SEJournal is the quarterly newsletter of the Society of Environmental Journalists. To preserve SEJournal's editorial independence, its editorial policies are set by a six-member editorial board that includes the SEJournal editor, who is selected by the editorial board. The editorial board's other members are appointed to staggered three-year terms by the SEJ Board of Directors. SEJournal welcomes submissions from or about the environmental journalism community; please contact Editor Adam Glenn for details. The current issue is available only to members (and via mail to subscribers); back issues are archived in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. To display or print them, get the free Adobe Reader ®. Note: Issues prior to Spring 1995 are scanned page images and are not searchable but are otherwise of high quality. The files are larger than true PDFs, ranging from 2.3 to 4.2 megabytes each. Advertise in the SEJournal.

Each issue includes some or all of the following: In-depth stories on hot topics on the environment beat; regular features such as Inside Story (interviews with and insights of journalists of winning work); Bits & Bytes and Reporter's Toolbox (practical, technical how-to's, from choosing a recorder to using Excel to photography); Research Roundup; Science Survey; Media on the Move; SEJ President's Report; E-Reporting Biz; Book Shelf (environmental book reviews) and The Beat (latest news trends from various media).

TipSheet: Prior to May 8, 2009  |  After May 8, 2009

TipSheet provides biweekly news tips to notify journalists of potential environmental stories and sources. NOTE: SEJ regrets that biweekly publication of the TipSheet was suspended after the February 29, 2012, issue. SEJ hopes to return to publication of TipSheet in the future, pending receipt of adequate funding. We welcome your help in identifying potential underwriters. Contact Executive Director Beth Parke.

Journalists are eligible for a free email subscription; send name and full contact information to the SEJ office.

EJ Today: Prior to May 8, 2009  |  After May 8, 2009

SEJ provides a selective, daily web-based listing of annotated links to an array of interesting and important stories on environmental topics, compiles them in a searchable database, and displays prize-winners and special series in a permanent web-based "gallery". EJToday is available as a free daily email digest called SEJ-beat which summarizes the day's postings. SEJ members are subscribed automatically; non-members may subscribe here.


You'll find SEJ's Environmental Events Calendar on our new website. You can submit an item to the calendar; all submissions will be reviewed by SEJ staff before posting, and may be rejected if not of interest to or open to attendance by environmental journalists.
