Data Journalism: Practices, Skills, Opportunities and Values

Bahareh R. Heravi

University College Dublin, Ireland

Data journalism is an emerging discipline, which is rapidly becoming an integral part of many newsrooms. Despite this growth, there is little known about the best practices, knowledge sets, skills, and more importantly opportunities, values and the ways to go forward in this discipline, and there is a lack of systematic research in this area. To address this gap, this paper presents a brief overview of the results of the first Global Data Journalism Survey , which journalists from 43 countries took part in. Presented results shed light on a variety of aspects of data journalism practice across the globe, including demographics, skills, education, and formation of data teams, as well as opportunities and values associated with data journalism.
