Data Journalism Handbook | since 2012


The reference book for this emerging field, also labeled the 'bible of data journalism', translates the expertise of more than 70 leading advocates and practitioners of data journalism into a collection of tips, techniques, stories from the field, case studies, and tutorials.

The book was conceived, coordinated, and edited by Liliana Bounegru of the EJC, and by Jonathan Gray (lead editor) and Lucy Chambers of the Open Knowledge Foundation, and published by O’Reilly Media in July 2012. Authors include experts from the New York Times, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC, the Chicago Tribune, Deutsche Welle, the Guardian, the Financial Times, La Nación, ProPublica, the Washington Post, the Texas Tribune, Zeit Online, and many others. 

The Data Journalism book has received coverage from dozens of publications worldwide, including the New York Times, the Guardian, Libération, TechCrunch, World Editors Forum, and many others. It is widely used in newsrooms, but also in academic departments dedicated to journalism, statistics, and graphic design. 

The Handbook, freely available online, has been translated into Russian and several other translations are underway, including into French, Chinese, Spanish, Turkish, Portuguese, and Arabic.
