This introduction chapter presents Part Two titled Journalism Scholarship and Journalism Practice. The content, comprising seven separate chapters, explores how best to bridge the chasm between journalism as theory and journalism as practice. The part elaborates on the debate about the conceptualization of journalism as a profession and the features that make it distinct from other professions. It starts with a survey of journalism practice literature in major scholarly journals. It offers an overview of an effective toolkit designed to assist journalists to provide more informed coverage of Muslims and Islam. It discusses the repercussions of emotional labor on journalism as a profession. Other topics touched upon include how to build bridges linking theory to practice, the design of a theoretical framework for journalism educators, and a speculative research outline on how to identify some priorities for a practical and theoretical investigation of journalism.
