From the Publisher:
Journalism Research and Investigation in a Digital World has been designed to help students of journalism, on how to conduct complex investigations.
It used to be that journalists made their job by asking people questions and writing down their answers to become the basis of tomorrow's stories. Increasingly, journalists need to interrogate data, to find out what matches, what doesn't fit, where the document trail leads. And then, most importantly, to make sense of the information itself. Data without context is useless: context without information is just background. Journalists need both to help media consumers understand what is going on.
This book reveals the range of tools available to journalists that will enable them to locate data and make sense of it. It highlights numerous case studies and shows how data can be built into a story. It is, essentially, a book about developing journalism research skills that can be applied broadly.
From wearing out shoe leather to the latest technologies, Journalism Research and Investigation in a Digital World helps journalism students and journalists who are embarking on their careers learn how to conduct complex investigations. It recognises that journalists need to develop skills that will enable them to work across a range of media platforms, while adapting to the new technology that will help them locate, interpret and package information in a faster, more efficient way. Key features: Practical case studies written by a range of journalists in the field documenting how they tackled a particular story. Highlights international and local examples, including Wikileaks and investigative social journalism and the Arab Spring. Written to allow readers to pick and choose the chapters and case studies to suit their immediate needs. Journalism Research and Investigation in a Digital World is also available as an e-book.
