#DataJournalism: The Data Journalism Handbook: Final call for contributions - Liliana Bounegru (Open Knowledge Foundation Blog)
"This post is by Liliana Bounegru, Project Coordinator at the European Journalism Centre, and Lucy Chambers, Community Coordinator at the Open Knowledge Foundation. It is cross posted on DataDrivenJournalism.net Where can I find data and how can I request access to it? What tools are available to me? How can I find useful stories within datasets? And, most importantly, how can I make a living through the practise of data journalism? Do these questions sound familiar? They should, because these are all questions that any data journalist who is just getting started should be asking. Leading data journalists from the New York Times, the Guardian, the BBC, and other top media organisations from around the world, are working together to answer all of these questions (and more) in the Data Journalism Handbook. The handbook is the first comprehensive practical guide to data journalism. As Aron Pilhofer, editor of Interactive News at the New York Times, noted at the beginning of the project: “A project like this is quite necessary. It’s kind of surprising that someone hasn’t tried to do this until now.”" - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
