about

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.

Data without context is useless: context without information is just background. Journalists need both to help media consumers understand what is going on.
