What is data journalism? What potential does it have? What are its limits? Where does it come from? Paul Bradshaw (Birmingham City University) and Mirko Lorenz (Deutsche Welle) say a bit about what is distinctive about data journalism.
Leading data journalists tell us why they think it is important and what their favourite examples are. Finally Liliana Bounegru (European Journalism Centre) puts data journalism into its broader historical context.
After several months of hard work, the Data Journalism Handbook is almost ready to be released. The handbook will be launched during the School of Data Journalism at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy, next week.
The handbook is a free, open source reference book for anyone interested in the emerging field of data journalism. The book will be made freely available online under a CC BY-SA license so anyone can read, copy, share, redistribute and reuse it under the terms of this license. Additionally a printed version and an e-book will be published by O’Reilly Media.
DataDrivenJournalism.net is dedicated to providing anyone interested in getting started with data driven journalism with a collection of learning resources, including relevant events, tools, tutorials, interviews and case studies.
