The Data Journalism Handbook shows how journalists can use data to improve the news.
At the time of publication, the field of data journalism was entirely new, and the collaborative creation of the handbook was a ground-breaking project, bringing together the international data journalism community and catalysing new data journalism initiatives around the world.
The Handbook is edited by Open Knowledge International and the European Journalism Centre, and includes contributions from some of the world’s leading data journalists and media organisations including the BBC, the Guardian, La Nacion, Le Monde, the New York Times, ProPublica, Zeit Online and many others.
The book is one of the leading resources for aspiring and practicing data journalists, and has been included on the syllabuses of university courses and journalism schools around the world. Editions in Russian, Spanish, French and more have already been published, with more translation and localisation initiatives underway in many countries.
“A unique journalistic collaboration”
-- Simon Rogers, Editor of the DataBlog, The Guardian
“A resounding case for data-driven journalism ... and the service that it offers the public”
