(99+) (PDF) The Principles, Features and Techniques of Data Journalism | Andreas Veglis -
Digital and computational technology is steadily developing and continually bringing changes in the field of journalism, which faces a major crisis, as people's trust in the media continues to decrease. This paper studies the subject of data journalism which is increasing in popularity and is considered to be at the forefront of these changes. This kind of journalism may be a way to re-establish and strengthen journalism's value, as well as to reassure its sustainability. Datasets, tools, policies on Freedom of Information and transparency and professionals become constantly available for data journalism to flourish. However, there are still many challenges along with skepticism and confusion around its role and value in the field. In the near future, data journalism seems to gain more trust by the news organization and the public, as both start to comprehend its potentials.

Deciphering Code: How Newsroom Developers Communicate Journalistic Labor: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
Newsroom developers often share code produced by their organizations within open source software (OSS) environments. This study details how newsroom developers communicate journalistic labor around code in these spaces. Here, they explain how code operates, as well as illustrate its centrality to newswork. This research finds engagement in OSS environments provides visibility for news organizations to showcase their computational approaches to digital news innovation. This work also advances that OSS engagement helps develop shared practices to digital newswork, further unifying newsroom developers as an interpretive community within journalistic practice.

(99+) (PDF) Data-led newsrooms: Integration, collaboration and work-flows in data-first media organizations News Production and Data Journalism: How is data journalism changing newsrooms and established professional work-flows? | Betty Tsakarestou - Acade
In this paper we present our work in progress of an ethnographic qualitative research, taking as case studies two data-led newsrooms in the US, where there is a very strong and influential data journalism community of scholars and media professionals.
We aim to shed a close-up light on how the organizational context of data journalism production impacts the evolution of two data-led newsrooms, taking the cases of one leading legacy organization (MarketWatch) and one digital-native, data-led by design organization (Quartz), focusing on their data- driven news work-flows, collaborations and challenges between journalists and data editors to produce data storytelling, and possible newsroom redesigns to mirror new data-led priorities and role dynamics.
