The Nordic Data Journalism Conference (NODA18), academic pre-conference titled “The second wave of data journalism research”, is calling for papers. The conference is held in 15 March 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden.
NODA 2018 features an academic track on Thursday, March 15, during which scholars are invited to present their work on data journalism. Participation in the academic track also includes admission to the rest of the conference program.
As we enter into the second wave of data journalism research, NODA18 welcomes submissions addressing theoretical or methodological issues particularly in the area of digital journalism that is referred to as data journalism. Because data journalism practices involve a convergence of disciplines, we also encourage cross-disciplinal studies, where journalism studies theory and methodology are influenced by research fields such as media technology, data science, interaction design, organizations, business and administration or political science.
Södertörn University also encourages research linked to the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe, and we would therefore be very happy to see studies addressing data journalism from this particular region, as well as studies with a comparative international perspective from other countries.
