Current Print Subscribers

For half a century, the Columbia Journalism Review has been dedicated to assessing the performance of American journalism, helping to stimulate continuing improvement in the profession, and speaking out for what is right, fair, and decent.

Now as journalism evolves, so does CJR. The modern news cycle demands greater vigilance and scrupulous consideration of journalism’s best practices and next steps. With your help, CJR will continue its work as a media watchdog and advocate for a sustainable, viable, and free press.

To support this mission, CJR decided last year to expand the magazine into an enhanced membership program.

Current CJR subscribers are automatically qualified to receive all of the Charter Member Benefits at no additional cost. Your current subscription is being converted to a membership and you will receive all member benefits for the remainder of your existing subscription.

The next issue of the print magazine will mail to everyone in November.

Now we need you to take a moment and activate your membership. Please click on the box below to be taken to the Membership center where you can set up and activate your membership.
