#Tip: Advice on ethics and best practice in data journalism

September 27th, 2013Posted by in Data, Top tips for journalists

As a still emerging field, data journalism throws up a number of practical and ethical pitfalls that have no real precedent in the industry.

Paul Bradshaw, who runs an MA in online journalism at Birmingham University and is a visiting Professor at city University London, has been publishing a series of articles through his Online Journalism Blog this week that seek to define some elements of best practice when it comes working with online data sources.

Privacy, protection of sources, automation and more are covered as part of a “draft book chapter on ethics in data journalism” Bradshaw is producing. Well worth remembering for established data journalists or those just starting out.
