Abstract

This paper explores how a professional doctorate, the Doctor of Professional Studies in Public Works at Middlesex University, was successfully completed using autoethnography as its methodology. It aims to illustrate to journalism educators the suitability of using this approach to undertake their own research, perhaps at doctoral level, as well as provide to students on journalism programmes a methodology, that while sometimes contested in the academy, is a credible and rigorous approach that can be meaningfully adopted in a practice-based field such as journalism education.
