The Data Journalism Handbook is produced by the European Journalism Centre and Google News Initiative, with support from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. It will be available in four languages as a free open-source download online and edited, like the original, by experts in the field Jonathan Gray and Liliana Bounegru at the Public Data Lab.

In 2018, authors and experts will join a Handbook Hack to create and edit content for the new edition. And you won’t have to wait long to start reading the new chapters: we will make them available online as they are completed.

The original handbook was an initiative of the European Journalism Centre and the Open Knowledge Foundation. It is published by O'Reilly Media and freely available online under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
