Here on Journalism.co.uk we regularly report on new mobile apps, and share expert advice on how to make the most of your mobile device when capturing images, video and audio - this how-to guide, for example, focuses on mobile video.

Staying on the theme of mobile video, We Are Juxt, a site dedicated to “mobile photography and mobile artistry”, this month published two video tutorials from FiLMiC Pro, a Journalism.co.uk app of the week back in August last year, outlining how to use the platform. Each tutorial covers key features of the app – here is the first, and here is the second.

#Tip: Correcting mistakes in data journalism

October 3rd, 2013 | No Comments | Posted by in Data, Top tips for journalists

On Journalism.co.uk we have previously looked at the subject of corrections in digital journalism, on news sites and social media, but this interesting article on Source takes a different angle on the issue, by asking “when and how to issue corrections for data journalism”.

The post includes examples of where mistakes might occur, and then tackles the idea of a “corrections policy for data”. All in all, a useful post to spark some discussion on best practice in this area.

#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – how to ask for data under FoI

At a meeting of Hacks/Hackers Canterbury on Monday, Nicola Hughes, a Knight-Mozilla fellow working at the Guardian, was asked a question about how to best get hold of a spreadsheet containing data when using the Freedom of Information Act.

Hughes explained that if the data exists as a spreadsheet or CSV file, the authority is obliged to make it available.

If a council or public body responds by stating it cannot release the data as some is confidential (details of those in foster care, for example), a request can be made to find out what details are in the database or spreadsheet and the person digging for information can then tailor their request to exclude the confidential information.

Ask for the “schema, name and footnotes” and the relationship between them, Hughes said, and then you can ask for what you are interested in.

For more on how to submit and FoI request see this guide.
