The Data team from the European Journalism Centre have just released the first 21 chapters of the new Data Journalism Handbook. We encourage students, journalists and general public to check out this book that not only does it provide the practicalities of the topic, but also the insights of the social, cultural, political and economic circumstances in which data journalism is embedded. Enjoy it!

The Data Journalism Handbook 2 is produced by the European Journalism Centre and Google News Initiative. The book will be available in English, Spanish, French and German as a free open-source download online and published by Amsterdam University Press (forthcoming, 2019). The Data Journalism Handbook 2 is edited, like the original, by experts in the field Jonathan Gray and Liliana Bounegru at the Public Data Lab.
