Resources

The CIJ provides a range of training material for journalists.

In this section you will find guidance on statistics for journalists, database research and online research as well as audio and video from the Summer School and other talks so you can catch up on any you missed.

Audio and Video
We have published a selection of presentations from our annual summer schools and other talks held throughout the year.

Handbooks
These offer detailed guidance and information about specific subjects, from advanced internet research to libel, here you'll find everything you need to get your investigation off the ground.

Media Coverage
CIJ guests and speakers are often asked to talk about their work in the media. Here you will find a selection of interviews with other media organisations.

Guides
These are less detailed than the handbooks and give an overview of the subject. They are generally support material for courses or classes that we have run.

Resource Handbook
In this section, you will find a list of links to training organisations, government sites, journalist networks and support organisations that provide information useful to investigative journalists.

Links Directory
A list of sites and sources relevant to investigative journalism, both nationally and internationally. These sources are grouped by those fields often associated with large-scale investigative journalism.

Books
Many of the hardest-hitting investigations, even in recent times, have appeared in books. Here we will announce new books in investigative journalism (and related fields), as well as recommending pioneering and ground-breaking work which may not be available to view online.
