Best Practices Projects and Reports

Last updated, June 10, 2012

This annotated list is a work in progress and will be regularly updated. In some cases I’m linking to an article about a project if that best clarifies the context of the initiative in question, but in these instances those articles go on to link back to the main report. The projects are listed in reverse chronological order. I say a bit more about the rationale for inclusions on this list at the bottom of this page.

What have I left out? Please email me at or tweet me with any suggestions.


The projects listed above differ considerably in scale, ranging from blog posts to large-scale research initiatives. I’ve included them if I consider they match most of the criteria I’ve outlined in the discussion in this blog’s about page, and in this conference paper - in short, if they’re opening up the discussion of how to address issues that arise with emerging practices in digital journalism. Some of the reports listed above aren’t specifically badged “best practices”, but are serving that purpose in all but name. Conversely, I’m not automatically including every post or project that uses the term “best practices” in its title. For instance I would be unlikely to draw attention to a report entitled ‘Best Practices in Preventing Web Traffic from Bleeding to Rival Sites’ (I’ve checked and it doesn’t exist – yet).
