With the rise of digital technologies, the ways in which journalism is produced, consumed, funded and monetised are rapidly expanding. Moreover, where journalistic content is produced, as well as by whom, is increasingly dispersed. These trends have resulted in the academic, societal and professional understanding of journalism changing in radical ways.

Today data journalism is a hot topic and the use of journalistically inclined data visualization appears to be on the rise. According recent overviews of the field (Howard 2014), academic historiography (Parasie & Dagiral, 2013), and self-talk by the founders of new data journalism projects (Silver 2014), this new form of quantitative reporting rescues journalism from its empirical backwater and brings reporting closer to an ideal if popularized form of social science.
