Data-driven reporting and investigative peace journalism

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

Data-driven reporting may introduce new strategies for investigative peace journalism (De-Arteaga & Boecking, 2019).  De-Arteaga and Boecking (2019) apply temporal trends and spatial-temporal anomalies for data-driven investigative reporting.  Coddington (2014) examine three data-driven journalism practices of computer-assisted reporting, data journalism, and computational journalism.  Coddington (2014) explains computational journalism as technologically oriented journalism which can often employ automation processes and algorithms.  Natural language processing enhances language capabilities of data-driven reporting (Wiedemann, Yimam, & Biemann, 2018).  Wiedemann et al. (2018) explain natural language processing libraries to support the analysis of heterogeneous data sources in investigative data journalism.  Data-driven reporting has many applications such as measuring nationalism by social network analysis (Sari, Ahmad, Hergianasari, Harnita, & Wibowo, 2021).
