This web site is maintained by Mark Berkey-Gerard, an associate professor of journalism at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. It is designed as a resource for students enrolled in the Data Journalism course. It is not an official publication of the university or of the journalism department.
I am indebted to the all of the journalists and educators who have developed books, articles, resources, exercises, tutorials and courses on this subject, in particular IRE and NICAR, the contributors to the Data Journalism Handbook, and the teachers and organizers of the Data Driven Journalism MOOC. I also relied heavily on Nick Geidner’s excellent course outline and research on the subject by Charles Berret and Cheryl Philips.
