Data Journalism Handbook

The Data Journalism Handbook is a free, open source reference book for anyone interested in the emerging field of data journalism.

It was born at a 48 hour workshop at MozFest 2011 in London. It subsequently spilled over into an international, collaborative effort involving dozens of data journalism's leading advocates and best practitioners - including from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC, the Chicago Tribune, Deutsche Welle, the Guardian, the Financial Times, Helsingin Sanomat, La Nacion, the New York Times, ProPublica, the Washington Post, the Texas Tribune, Verdens Gang, Wales Online, Zeit Online and many others.


„ I want to see the handbook in my language! “

If you are a publisher, a news organisation or any other kind of organisation active in the media field interested in becoming an official partner and helping to translate the book into your language please sign up here and we will get in touch with you.


The Data Journalism Handbook is an initiative of the European Journalism Centre and the Open Knowledge Foundation. It is published by O'Reilly Media and freely available online under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
