Perreault and Vos (2019) explain meta-journalistic discourse to be a discussion among journalists about journalism.  Investigative peace journalism seeks to identify effective solutions through the field of journalism.  These solutions may also benefit the field of journalism by providing research for which emerging techniques are adequate for the new digital media environments.  Investigative peace journalists have many new tools available to replace or coincide with existing journalistic methods.  Appelgren and Lindén (2020) identify emerging journalistic forms such as robot journalism, automation of common tasks, and entrepreneurial journalism, technology for self-promotion, to challenge the field from within the field of journalism.  Some of the emerging tools may be detrimental to the field, however, the comprehension of their existence can be valuable to investigative peace journalists.  Appelgren and Lindén (2020) suggest that traditional journalists may benefit from understanding the environments of digital media organizations.
