This study explores the conceptualization of investigative journalism by Malaysian media practitioners through in-depth interviews.Their conceptualizations were stimulated by various values and factors affecting their practice.Using qualitative analysis software Nvivo, this study found four major themes that characterized the conceptualization of investigative journalism among Malaysian media practitioners.Although the stimuli are different from other countries, their perception on investigative journalism still concurred with general understanding, but they alter the practice to suit local media environment, values and culture.
