Journalism Training Manual: Thinking like a Data Journalist

The manual introduces data and how it is used to create public service stories by journalists. To begin with, this manual explains what open data is, and how it impacts policy. Subsequently, journalists will be introduced to several strategies for identifying story angles and then practice those skills through the analysis of a number of case studies that will demonstrate how data from various sectors have been used to create data-driven stories. Finally, we look at investigative journalism and its relationship to data journalism.
