Modern journalists often have to report in areas of war and conflict and there is a growing need to support their emotional handling of difficult reporting situations, as well as encouraging greater emotional literacy in the profession.This research was prompted by the growing concern about the mental health of some journalists, especially those involved in conflict reporting. It identifies areas of opportunity for and resistance to the promotion of emotional literacy amongst journalists, which could lead to more effective strategies for training.

Human activities and manmade structures can negatively affect bird populations. Previously there was no robust method to quantify the impact. BU researchers have applied extensive behavioural research to develop unique computer modelling techniques. This has accurately predicted how human activities affect coastal birds in 35 sites in Europe and one in Australia.

Promoting and leading British radio archive policy

Despite being a rich source of social, cultural and political history, radio archives are mostly inaccessible. Research by the Centre for Media History (CMH) at BU was the motivation behind a committee formed to raise awareness of the problem. The committee strongly supported the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to make their catalogue available to the public via the British Library (BL) and the research itself informed the library’s new sound archive policy.
