Datajournalistik

Data-driven journalism is a project between Södertörns University (SH), Swedish Television Pejl
(SVT), SAS Institute, Swedish Radio, Norrköpings Tidningars Media, Helsingborgs Dagblad, Mittmedia, Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet.

The aim of the project alliance is to innovate data-driven journalistic services in Sweden.
Joint activities are to develop, integrate, practically test methods and tools for data-driven
journalistic. This will raise awareness, generate experience and knowledge for participating journalists
and media companies´ management. The public´s reception and interactive engagement will be an
important part of this evaluation.


Two types of stakeholders are focused upon: journalists and the general audience, i.e. citizens of the
information 3.0 society. The potential of the project is that other interested players will also benefit
from the project´s outcomes.

Using public data sources for shared analyses has not been carried out in practice in Sweden. The project is therefore also an attempt to support local media companies to take part of resource intensive journalistic publications.

 Computer assisted reporting (CAR). Datadriven journalism. Databasjournalistik. Datajournalistik.Det finns många namn på den växande genre inom undersökande journalistik som använder statistisk analys, datorstödd textanalys och olika typer av grafisk visualisering. Detta område har varit föremål för ett samarbete mellan forskare vid Södertörns högskola och Pejlredaktionen vid Sveriges Television (SVT) under 2011/12. Syftet med samarbetet har varit att utveckla kunskap om arbetsmetoder inom datajournalistik och om publikens användning av den. Projektet har haft stöd från den statliga forskningsstiftelsen Vinnova, och går från hösten 2012 över i en ny fas där ytterligare sju medieföretag ska vara med under en tvåårsperiod.
