Andy Dickinson: Checklist for online journalism

We like a list at and following on from Craig Silverman’s checklist to reduce reporting errors is Andy Dickinson’s ‘process and content checklist’.

The list encourages journalists to record online research, postcodes, key players in the story, key times and dates – all with an aim for potential multimedia storytelling. e.g. if there are more than four or five dates the story might lend itself to a timeline, suggests Dickinson.

“This may seem a little too systematic for some but I’d be interested in what you think of the idea as an aide memoir to kick start more online thinking earlier in the reporting process,” he writes in a blog post.
