The Principles, Features and Techniques of Data Journalism

Olga Kalatzi, Charalampos Bratsas, Andreas Veglis

Abstract


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.
