The role of journalism does not change, nor does the journalist's modus operandi", explains John Villino.

“There are, however, innovative tools, skills and specializations that cannot be ignored. There are areas on which attention needs to be focused, such as, for example, theartificial intelligence and its applications in publishing. This and much more is being developed in the forthcoming volume and platform, Metaversojournalism.com".
